Was wondering if anyone had seen a 1958 Lincoln with what appears to be a date error in the 9. Is this worth getting checked out? I am fairly new to collecting. Thanks for any help or suggestions!

That blob in the 9 is known as a die chip--in this case a broken post or filled 9. The part of the die that forms the 'interior' of the 9 breaks off, causing the void to be filled when the coin is struck. Nice example, but really doesn't add value to the Wheat cent. Not uncommon with '50s cents. A collector who is crazy in love with broken posts might pay upwards of 15-25 cents for the coin.

No, this is a die chip issue. The difference? A post is on a incuse center device. The (9&6) on Lincoln cents are not closed. They are open. Thus when that area breaks out, it is a chip issue and not a broken post issue on those digits.
