Found this on eBay. I have no idea who this is supposed to be. Should be someone of fairly significant importance for someone to have gone through the trouble and expense of making the die set for it. This is the sellers image. When I get the coin in hand I can post better pictures. Thanks in advance.

Looks like Abe Lincoln to me.

I have two different Abe repousse Lincoln cents that I've ran across. I'll post pictures of them in a little while. For some reason I can't bring them up in my previous image feed. Those two look like Abe Lincoln. I'm pretty sure this is someone different but could definitely be wrong.

I guess it could be a third Abe.

Typically, it seems, the repousse is the person originally on the coin. I'm from Canada, and it sure looks like Abe to me. Maybe not the best representation, though.

@chafemasterj, It could be John L. Lewis, longtime president of the UMW.

The bow tie is confirmation that it's Lincoln. Oddly, its pretty worn, probably a pocket piece at one point.

Now that I have the coin in hand I can see it as being a third Abe Lincoln in repousse. I also agree with CMattB2 that it may have been a pocket piece at one time. Much of the detail is lost to wear.
