This is my oldest Wheat penny in my 50 plus wheat pennies. Is there any errors or maybe more valuable for it's condition?

Sorry, well worn and damaged (scratched) common date - worth less than 5 cents.

Coinfrog said it mildly . To send a common date coin in for grading it needs to be at the high end of uncirculated ( Red ) in color . I hope this makes cense to you .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

Splitting hairs I'm sure--I'd say it's worth 10-15 cents. Anyway, it looks like the majority of early wheat cents--very, very worn with a few annoying nicks.

Well 1920 is pretty old for this series, so well done having one from only 11 years after the very first Lincoln cents! Lots of honest wear here. It is tired after roughly 100 years in circulation, but nice to have in any case.

when coins get that worn down, any errors they might have had originally are worn down too, making them tough to spot

Common date, pretty bad obverse scratches. AG-G at best.

Yep.
Over 100 years of wear.
Nothing special.
Not worth grading.
