It's worth a whole cent. The fingerprint isn't stamped in but was etched when someone handled it with dirty fingers. Over time, the oils from your skin will react with the metal in the coin, actually eating into the surface of the coin, which may make it look like the fingerprint was stamped into the coin. This is considered damage to the coin and can easily make the coin worthless to collectors.

No, no genuine Indian Head penny is stamped "COPY" on the reverse, or obverse. All such examples are replicas containing no collector value. The only value that such coins have is the value of what they are made out of.

The coin is only one cent, the counter stamped date adds nothing to the value.

One cent. It's a privately-made novelty item.

2 or 3 cents for the copper. 1 cent face value for the coin. Anything added to a coin post minting, such as a "G" stamped on it ruins the coins value to a collector.

About 5 cents. Steel pennies aren't nearly as valuable as most people believe.

It's worthless just a cent actually

The Indiana stamp on it does not increase the value, in fact, if the coin had some numismatic value prior to being stamped the addition of the stamp would decrease the value. If it is just a common date penny I would just spend it or you can keep it. There may be a value for it in maybe, 300 years.

Yep! Depending on how much of it is left unstamped, the value range from $2 to $10.
