It looks to me like he has 2 eyes, one on top of the other,and also there seems to be a Y in the back of his head. Are these notable errors and does it make the coin valuable? Thank you for your help.

@mun, it sounds like you are saying that there is a a doubled eyelid on Abe. I can't see this from the current pics though—any chance of you adding a nice closeup of just this area?

It's not his eyelid, it looks like another eye directly below the standard one. I'll try to get a better picture.

Ok yes looking forward to a close-up, but based on your description, the most likely scenario is damage plus Pareidolia.

I believe you just have a heavily damaged LMC.
