I am new to coin collecting. These were taken with a microscope and despite the look, they are in focus.Is this a grease error on both sides? I'm not even sure if it's Denver or Philly by the mint mark. Thanks for any kind advice.

Thank you. Is there any value for a coin like this? 

No, no value over face value.  But if you find it interesting there is no reason you cannot hold onto it, if for no other reason than as an example of what a coin struck from worn dies looks like.

Thanks again. I will do that.

I forgot to add, you coin appears to have a "P" mintmark indicating it was struck at the Philly mint.
