I'm interested in learning what caused this tiny letter "Y." Is this a collectible penny or common?

Looks like a badly overpolished die. Probably from removing a substantial die clash. I'd keep it if I found one like this, but I'm also new-ish to the hobby myself, so my standards may not be as high as some. Still, I think a lot of people would set aside a coin like this.

A fun example of aggressive die polishing. Interesting coin.
