That's not an error coin. That's a damaged coin. It's Post Strike Damage (it happened after it left the U.S. Mint). It also looks like it was cleaned at some point as well.

Is this the right coin? If so the 1953 was split or time traveled into a 1946. Thanks, Doug.

Two sides to every coin. The edge makes three.

See we're now back to the future. The 1953 has something going on about the face and neck, just not sure what. The staining or odd toning is hiding it. Thanks, Doug.

hello everyone I'd like to bring this coin back up, upon further view and closer inspection of the affected area ,I'd like to point out a couple of spots of the coin which I have questions about,let's start with the hair on the top of Lincoln's head where the affected area is at ,there appears to be a curl in the affected area as well as his mouth where you can see where his lips would have been and appears to have been drug out to where they are now in fact his whole face looks wider than normal cents ,as if you were to push his forehead nose and chin back towards his face they would put everything back into perspective ,just wondering g how a file mark could make his face wider than normal cents ,you can see the curl of hair under the damaged area and where the lips seem to have been dry to where they are now thanks for looking these are just a couple of spots where the filing dosent quite seem logical again thanks

The large pitting on the obverse and recessed area in front of Lincoln's forehead with horizontal lines makes me think damage from acid. (Or a very remote possibility of a lamination.)
