Is this normal for this year of penny where it says trust and on the back the one cent if that looks weird.. Not sure what this would be classified as or if I even have anything worth value. Could anyone tell me what I have?

I do not see anything out of the ordinary on this one. It is in decent shape for its age though.

As coop said, it is the result of die deterioration and is fairly common. I've seen it called a "ridge rim". No added value there, sorry.

Keep searching!

Edit: all that error-ref says about it is:

As dies " deteriorate", the metal moves to the outside on the dies because of all that pounding motion. Notice how close the letters are to the rim, beginning to wrap and curl...
