I’m new to collecting diecast and was wondering if this is an error and if so how much is it worth

Looks to be correct. In your photos above is the rear tire damaged? (Hard to tell)

Different people call it different things but yes it can be classed as an error. I would call it a production error specifically. Most M2 collectors I know would leave it behind as they want perfection. But there are even M2 collectors who would want it for the '57 Chevy collections a unique piece to have. Since it is new - you can probably get a nice premium value (sold price) but over time it will not be worth to much more than a perfect casting.

We usually search the ebay sold listings to get a current market value. Whatever you see today at ebay will trend down over the next few weeks (most of the time) for most M2s. I also filter for US only listings.

Ok so should I do an auction or a sell

Really up to you which way or where to list it. To me an online auction is the same as selling it with a buy it now option.
