Looks like the coin was struck from an old, worn-out die. A mint worker should have replaced the die, but this one came out anyway. Not very valuable. Silver value only.

Do you have a picture of the reverse of the coin? The 'S' mint mark is on the reverse to the right of the word 'ONE'. This coin as I see it now is worth about $4 more than triple silver value (which at today's price 2-2-18 would be $1.33) but if the 'S' mint mark is inverted or upside down it could be worth from $20 to $25. The nine looks normal to me but the rest of the date is a little weak but that would still grade a solid G6 to G8 in my book possibly even higher or maybe lower depending on the condition of the reverse.
