Hello. Can anyone tell me if this is a strike error? And if so what type... I am new to this forum and beginning cent roll hunting.

:welcome:

from your pic here,....

this appears to be a cent that has had 2 other coins, side-by-side, pressed into it, leaving the 'semi-circular indentations' you are seeing..... JMO

No, this is after mint damage and makes the coin worth face value only.
