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.

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.

How can you tell a 1909 penny from a 1909 replica penny?

There is no easy way to convey in text what you have to really look for. The first thing to do is look if "COPY" or "REPLICA" is stamped on the coin, if that is on it, the coin is a replica and has no collector value. If it doesn't have that stamped in, compare its dimensions to a normal penny, if all that works, I'd take it in to a reputable coin dealer and see if he can tell you if it is a replica or not.
