Parts of the coin are flattened and you can kind of see the words on the flattened parts

It's not possible to see the words on the flattened parts in the photos. It is possibily post mint damage.

In the picture I added, the top right corner part that has a bit of light on it has letters if you look closely. Could the round parts that are flat be the be an indent error with multiple indents? Could it be damage that happened out of the mint? If not, how much is it worth?

Hi Charlie ::: There is a type of minting error known as a brockage that resembles your coin. See pictures above. Brockages carry values on the order of $10 to $20 US dollars for one cent coins.

Your coin is probably not a brockage. In a true brockage, one side is almost normal, while the other side is mal-formed. Your coin is mal-formed on both sides. Further, and most important, the marks from scraping that appear on your coin would not be produced at the mint. For these reasons, I think your coin is not a minting error, but post-mint damage.
