Is this called a railroad rim? Its a 1950P in pretty good shape. My camera isn't that great but took the best pics I could. The picture of the actual rim doesn't do it justice. I just couldn't take a better pic of it unfortunately. Do these type of errors have much added value?

Railroad rim is caused by a partial collar. Usually only a part of the rim is affected.

Your coin looks like a flattening/strong strike/or damage? Not the railroad rim. Spendable

The edge view has the typical appearance of a cent removed from an encasement.

I would disagree. If it had been removed from an encasement it would be damaged where the coin was "pushed through" the encasement, to remove it. Most holders are materials with a lower Rockwell rating than the Copper planchents used in coins. In these instances most of the damage is to the holder rather than the coin, from the coin being pressed into the holder. But in any case most of the damage would be to one side of the rim, and not in the center of the rim

Also, I found a few of these while bag searching earlier this year and looked at more than a few error sites and coins with this feature were listed as Partial collars.
Rest in Peace

This is not a partial collar strike and is damage. An encasement makes sense. There is a groove in the edge of the coin. A partial collar strike leaves 2 diameters, one the correct size formed by the collar and one larger than the collar where the material squeezed out over the top of the collar.
