Kind of hard seeing it actually without zooming in, strange uploading of picture.
What I can see though it has been altered after in was holed.
Mechanical press of sorts

Looks like the photo was taken through the wrong end of binoculars.
I’d say it is post-mint damage and serious wear. Maybe post a better front and rear photo.

maybe the mint tried destroying it because it was wrong metal for that years production
No, that's not the way it works. If it was destroyed by the mint, it would be completely destroyed, not just holed. Please show a clear picture of the obverse with the date on it.

If it's dated 1943 this may be quite the discovery.

Let's see that date in a clear pic
Here's a better picture of the other side.

Sorry, but you just have a dateless damaged wheat cent. Interesting damage though, looks like it may have been altered to serve some purpose.
