It looks like a fairly generic Wheat cent to me. Do you see any potential errors you can point out?

P.S. Please make sure that your photos are oriented correctly in the final post. It makes analysis much easier.

The "I" in "LIBERTY" looks like it was damaged from taking a well placed hit. The metal looks pushed over and flattened. If that's the case, then it's not an error coin.

@BV, a common date, average circulation, Philly mint Wheat cent such as this one is likely worth a few times face value. It is a neat part of history, but you will have to decide for yourself whether it is "worth it" to save in your collection.

Certainly collectible, but very common and just worth a few cents.
