Is this an error on top of Lincolns head?

Good eye, that's the start of a de-lamination fault.

Coinfrog, that's actually a Retained Interior Die Break on the head, not a Delamination.

Thank you all for your opinions! Since I'm new to this, should I have someone take a closer look at this coin? This is out of my roll of wheat cents I bought off of Ebay. Would it be worth a buck or two?

My first thought was also die break but Coinfrog has me questioning myself.
I'll defer to Coop's judgment should he choose to enlighten us.

Does this coin have any value over face value? Thanks

@JC500, have you tried looking at completed eBay sales of similar coins? For sure most wheat cents have a slight (2x-5x) premium over face value. I don't know enough as to whether you would get much of a premium beyond that for this defect.

Thanks Spence. I found a few similar coins on Ebay. About $3 or $4 is the asking price. I was just curious as I want to keep it.

This one is outside my knowledge. I was gonna say just damage but obviously I'd be wrong! Good luck with this one.

Cheers
