Anybody know if this is an actual error and if it's worth anything. I have a 1977 penny in the middle of Lincoln looks like there's a zero in it idk if it was from when they were printing it

to the CCF

That looks like a heavily punched counterstamp.
You can see it bulging on the reverse.
It would be classed as damage, value 1 cent.

FYI-
Coins are not printed, they are struck.
Currency is printed.

One cent. Some counterstamped coins, although a damaged coin, can have additional value as a novelty. I don't think that applies here.

Welcome!

This is damage on your coin. It is worth one cent. Metal alphanumeric stamps are readily available, and someone used one to mark up you cent. Why? No idea!

I can personal make as many as you want...in two different sizes even!

It is now a damaged coin. Just a face value coin now. Copper melt coin.
