I have a 1916 Lincoln Penny with a dot below the date. Coin is not in great shape. Any suggestions of its value? I appreciate the comments of die deterioration however DDD would show signs in other areas of the coin which in this case does not appear to show signs of DD or DDD. I understand the condition of the coin is poor. The dot appears to be almost the same height as the 1 and the 9.  The coins even wear from the center of the coin to the exterior of the coin. I still want your comments, to confirm if this is an error before attempting to have coin graded to confirm dot. Thank you all for the input. I also submitted theses images to a large Auction house based in the USA. I received a reply today and they suggested to get coins graded and recognize NGC as one of there graders. That answers my question whether to get graded. Thanks all.

Looks like it may be a small die chip. Doesn't really add any extra value but coin should be worth in the $7.00 range in that condition.

May also be damage that has pushed up a small mound of metal.  Can't tell from that image.

Greenstang I think your value estimate is seriously high.  This is a 1916 Philadelphia in VG to Fine, I would think 50 cents would be a closer retail value.
