These errors are pretty common on the 1950's Lincoln Wheat Cents. The U.S Mint would overuse the dies, to the point, until they litterally fell apart.

Also on the '9', that is Machine Doubling. No premium for MD, or die wear. Strong die crack on the reverse. But it is still a Wheat cent.

common problem found in the mid 50's, interesting, but very little if any added value.
