That is a common large date 1970-S business strike coin. See nothing out of the ordinary about it, you have a specific question? There is no premium value on it.

@JustJes, first welcome to CCF. Second, I agree with @crazyb0 that this seems like a normal cent with moderate wear and tear (and a corrosion spot on the rev). Not worth over face value, but coming from your dad's collection may still make it worth saving.

Welcome to CC!

As other said, just a normal large date cent.

You should include the date, mintmark, and the denomination in your titles.

Why Topic Titles are Important

Nice to meet you. Agree with everyone above. Perhaps more sentimental value.
