Default 2011 cent strike through?

Hello to everyone, first post here. Here is a 2011 cent I have come across that has a indent in front of abe's mouth. Please help with some further info on this type of error. I am new to coin collecting and am slowly building my collection, I seem to have a eye for the unusual. If I can send it out for further inspection, please let me know. Thank you for your time and assistance with this.

From here it looks like impact damage. I seem to detect a pressure ridge around the depression, which would confirm my assessment.

Default Die trash?

Thank you for the info on these. I was trying to figure out if there would be a premium on these for the impact area. I have a some that range from size and depth of the area in front of mouth. I still have more boxes to sort through, so there may be more or just the ones I have. Thank you for your time and assistance with this.

Impact damage is worth nothing since it occurs after the strike. It's possible the imperfection is a small "struck through" error (struck through a piece of debris). Its value would be negligible, 25 cents at most.

Thank you for the info on this, I have been putting them aside for possibly selling them in the future. I have come across approx. 100+ so far. Also about 200 so far with a die crack at the bottom left of the shield that forms a Y. Thank you for your time and assistance with this.
