    I am a fairly new collector and have this wheat penny. The “LI” in Liberty are cut off from being capped. Is this valuable? Any input is appreciated

    Not an error coin of any kind or type.

    It's a damaged coin, aka "dryer coin" for 'tapped' edges

    Everything you see on it occurred well after
    it was already in circulation. Didn't leave the
    Mint like that.....sorry.

    Hi Kristina and welcome to the forum. Hard to tell from your photos but it appears the rim or edge of your cent is raised. If it is then I would suspect that cent has been spooned. Something I did a great deal of as a youngster. Continual tapping around the edge of the coin raises the rim and decreases the diameter. Tap long enough and drill out the center and you have a ring!
