I found this today while cleaning out my old safe. I forgot about it. Missing half of his head and bottom of neck. The E from We is noticeable and part of small part of W.Back of coin looks normal.
What type of error is this called? Any value?

@jbro, first welcome to CCF. Second, this looks like preferential wear such as when someone uses a coin to shim the leg of a wobbly chair. While it looks pretty cool, it is just damage rather than a mint error.

Damage can be caused in a wide variety of ways, no one can say definitively how the damage to your coin happened. We can say with certainty that this damage occurred after it left the mint. NO mint error here, sorry, simply post mint damage ( PMD).

Damage for sure, intentionally caused I'm thinking. A fun curiosity for a 2x2.
