i would recommend checking the error section, and familiarize yourself with what is and what isn't an error..

Then check on ebay under sold error coins, and see what is worth collecting..

The more obvious an error happens to be, the more valuable it is likely to be.
The more obvious an error happens to be, the more likely that someone else has beaten you to identifying it, and taken it out of circulation.

Very minor errors can become an academic study in their own right, but for the most part, are valued at a lot less premium over their face value.

What errors to look for really depends what motivates you:
academic study, or
trying to win the lottery.

A damaged coin is not an error coin. Just like a wrecked car is not a factory error. 99% of the coins with incuse marks on the coins are post strike damaged. The 1% ones are the ones with a premium. A damaged coin is just a face value coin. No premium for a damaged coin.
Are there different types of items stuck through errors? Hard items, soft items?
