Found this interesting penny and I'm curious if this is a mint error or just a type of natural wear/degradation. The issue is indentation on the left side. I am not a collector, just enjoy learning about numismatics!

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

to CCF. That is called a ridge ring,aka a worn die. Not an error and worth 1

Thank you guys for the help!

I've really enjoyed learning more about numismatics from this site. I really started to have an interest after visiting a numismatics exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago in 2016, but I've always looked for different coins and currency to collect.
