Good morning! Can someone give me input / information about this coin. I think I took good enough pictures. All the letters on both sides, the date all look to have a black number under original. And his eyes look missing. Just a black hole. Thanks and have a great day

Not sure what you are seeing but all I see is a regular 1968 cent.
I think you may be looking too hard for something that is not there.
I don't know if you have taken time to learn the minting process and what
an error actually is, but if you have, then you what know that what you have described is not possible.

From the glare I'm guessing that is Machine Doubling on those areas. New collectors see this and try to get lots of light on this to show it, but all we see is glare.

The "black" areas you describe are just shadows. Are your lighting sources from extreme angles? Normal cent. I agree, you are looking hard for things that just aren't there.
