Found this in a coin I purchased roll believe It or not so far I got a grade of Ms 62 so my question is the spike on the head does that add any value to this coin or is it just still face value.

Do you know what the tiny spots are on your coin? Those are sneeze droplets. Even saliva will alter the color of coins:

Note the darker color on the coin. That what happens to a coin that has bodily fluids on it.

@gru, sorry but I'm not seeing a die crack coming off of Abe's head toward the rim. Rather, I see a die crack in Abe's hair. If that is what you are talking about, then the nick-name we typically use is "cracked skull" rather than "spike head".
