Looks like G-06 sharpness, but no sense of the true color from these pics.

In numismatic parlance "front of penny" would be stated obverse of cent. U.S. coinage technically does not include "pennies".

It does look like Good detail with a bit of woodgrain (striping) effect from a poor alloy of metals in the planchet.

It's just highly worn, G to AG based on the reverse. I lean toward AG.

The "stripe" you refer to is from an alloy mixing error also known as a "woody"

Sure it's a keeper, but retail value is only around 20-25 cents.
