So I was looking through my wheat pennies and I noticed this 1946 s that appears as if it has a faint image of a head on the tails side I can't quite tell so I'd like others input if you can see it in pictures.

That's called Progressive Indirect Design Transfer (PIDT), caused by a very worn die. It's common on those years. http://www.error-ref.com/progressiv...gn-transfer/

Basically it comes from the repeated pounding of the hammer die(obverse) against the planchet/coin which then passes the affects through to the anvil die (reverse) as a reverse bust image like you see. Is indeed a product of over used dies, but is quite common amoung the "wheaties".

You're very welcome and no problem! I'm always glad to help. This is the weirdest form of Die Deterioration.
