Is this tail on the base of the T from CENT / reverse look valuable, or is it just not.

either way, I have a bunch of pennies that look interesting enough. Im having trouble finding a variety attribution list. I came across one, are they all the same? seen one, seen em all?

    The cent you show is just worn and slightly damaged. No extra value for it.

    Looks like the coin was hit and the metal from the T pushed up. It's referred to as Post Mint Damage.
