That's a normal circulation strike cent minted in Philadelphia worth $.01, not the proof no-S variety that's quite valuable.

I suspect it's damage of some sort. The coin is not, and never was, a proof so it could not have an S mintmark.

Your Lincoln cent is called a business strike meaning it was produced for normal circulation from either the Philly mint or Denver mint ; Not a proof coin . For your coin to be of great value it would have to be a proof struct coin without the S mint mark Which would be a mint error .

The missing 'S' is a proof cent. Your coin is a business strike coin.
