It's called a counterstamp. It was punched into an already struck 1975 cent after it left the Mint. This was done around the time of the USA Bicentennial celebration, 1976, and all 50 states are represented. Some full sets likely exist, but most have probably been separated over the years and made their ways into places like collections, circulation, vaults, jewelry boxes, and storm drains. Cents like this are technically altered/damaged, but exonumists often collect various counterstamped coins. However, this is not a relatively rare counterstamp and is probably worth a rather modest amount. Like anything, it's only worth whatever anyone would be willing to pay for it.
