1970 Liberty coin errors

I am VERY new to coin collecting and was given a few coins from my grandpas collection after his passing.

I can’t seem to find any coin with similar errors and I’m honestly curious if anyone has seen this before and possible value? I have attached photos. It seems to be missing it mint and the coin is stamp upside down on the opposite side.

    Not errors. Post mint damage. The mintmark isn't missing; this is a Philadelphia issue ( Philly didn't put mintmarks on coins at this time). The inverted reverse is normal coin alignment.

  • It’s supposed to show reversed image like upside down on the other side? Normally when I flip them the image isn’t reversed.

    Oh okay my other coin isn’t an upside down image when I flip it so I was confused.

    Welcome to the forum and coin collecting! :)

    Your coin is not an error.
    No mint mark means (P) Philadelphia.
    Check your other pocket change and you will see all US coins are upside down. ;)
    The difference is "coin alignment" or "medal alignment"

    Thank you. I don’t have much American coins I’m in Canada so probably the confusion lol
