Just was curious if the mint mark on this coin is higher-than-normal it stood out to me when I was searching through my change just curious if anyone has an opinion about the placement of the mint mark
Not to throw out a full list about this coin just looking for others opinions when you look at the date if you look close enough do you notice above the visible date there is a 9 + 8 + a 0 faintly above 1970 also is the FG on the reverse side considered visible it doesn't even look like you could see the f and the g looks like a c and when you look at the penny from distance away you can't even tell it's there
also on the reverse side when you look at America does it seem like there's doubling anywhere in that area because to me it looks like around the A&m something seems like it used to be there and has been stamped over or covered up
on the reverse side the picture that shows the steps is that a letter drop or is it a number drop looks like a d possibly a circle and not to sound odd but if you look close enough it almost seems like take the picture and look at it sideways and possibly could be a faintimage of a person I don't know for sure so I'm hoping anybody that has any thoughts or opinions may be able to help me I am fairly new turn the coin hunting and collecting hobby and watching YouTube clips on coin hunting and errors seems like anything could be a possibility for those who may respond I appreciate you taking the time to read and help me out thank you

Mintmarks were still being punched by hand during this era, so many different locations are common.

Just a regular cent with maybe some die chips or die cracks, worth 1 cent. KEEP LOOKING! :)

I don't know how collectible it is but there has to be people out there looking for identifiable examples of different die pairs of any given year, which this would be. Everyone collects differently.
Fairly certain you couldn't really sell it at a coin shop but if you put a few different ones together, various mint mark locations, I'm sure you could probably make $5-$10 on ebay depending on how far you were to go with it from someone out there.

The FG is there, I don't see a "980" around the date area at all in these pictures. And I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary for a circulated coin around the "AM" in these pictures.

It is an example of a specific die pair, but die pair collecting is kind of a niche interest in the hobby, not many people paying that much attention to specific details on common coins. Some researcher/cataloger type person would probably have interest though.
