Welcome to the forum. Are the letters across the top of the Memorial building on the front of the coin reversed? The image is a little blurry when it is enlarged.

Looks like another penny was glued to this penny and then removed, can you pick it off? If not then someone used another penny, placed on top of this one and hit it with a hammer. It is damage either way.

It is worth about 2 cents because of the copper (unless it is a Double Die variety). But these images are not focused or close enough to tell.
