First of all, this is a 1829 Large Cent wit what's called a " counter-stamp " done by an individual Post Mint .

Counterstamps do not come from the US Mint so it is always going to be damage to the coin and most will not add any value.

Agreed, but with older ones, there sometimes is a market - check eBay for counterstamps. You likely won't find an exact one though.
