Is this a common error or can this be worth something?

@jpmind, when the part of the die that forms the inner loop of the number 9 breaks off, subsequent cents struck with this die will show a similar die chip. This is quite common and does not add to the numismatic value of your Wheat cent.

It's a type of chip known as a "broken post".
