I don't know how errors occur with hammered coins, but I think this is what you have. In the first photo, it looks like the tips of the long cross at 3:00 and 6:00, which should be (and are) on the reverse, and between them the letters VND which can be seen in the same place on the reverse. IN the second photo, the legend is disappearing into beading that should be at the rim at 5:00.

Other than this, some groups of letters can be made out, (obverse seems to suggest HENRICVS?), but difficult beyond this.

Edit: Perhaps the error described, on this coin: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces56000.html
If you rotate your top photo 120 degrees clockwise, you have the beard pointing down in the proper orientation.

And I suggest to the moderators moving this post over to a thread related to medievals or to English coins to get more eyes on it.

English long-cross penny, flip-over double strike. "ON LVND" is a London mint signature. Most are Henry III but the early issues of Edward I are of the same type and retain the name "Henricvs Rex".
