Just looks like damage to me. Might have spent some time getting run over in a parking lot.

Your coin looks to match number 2 in the list of Dirty Dozen Damages. Even though there is no premium value to these, you might try to find a nice example of each.

1) discoloration - stains from coffee, or environmental damage from being buried, heated, etc.
2) scrapes over much of the coin - damage from sliding on pavement, a parking lot coin
3) coin bent or edges not round - it has been smashed with a hammer
4) coin blank on all or most of one side - someone sanded it down
5) mirrored lettering - a vise job, a coin squeezed against another in a vise
6) rough, pebbly surfaces - coin that received an acid bath
7) smooth rims, smaller diameter - has been trapped rolling inside a dryer, a " dryer coin"
8) clear mounds on coin - glue that has dried transparently
9) small indentations in the shape of the letter D - marks left by the impact of the reeded edge of another coin
10) large blisters - coin exposed to high heat, such as in a campfire
11) shapes, often letters or numbers, not indented or raised - Pareidolia (like animal shapes in a cloud)
12) a circular scrape just inside the rim - "ring of death" caused by a coin rolling machine

Don't despair! Error coins remain ready to find from circulation, but they are outnumbered by unusual looking coins that merely have been damaged. If you can imagine a way to change an undamaged coin into one like you see, that's probably exactly what happened to it. Changes to a coin after it leaves the mint's striking chamber are considered post mint damage, or PMD, and have no premium value.

If you are asking what the coin was before being seriously scraped up, the boy was Abraham Lincoln and the coin is the second of four commemorative Lincoln Cents issued in 2009 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth and the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Cent. Yours is officially know as "Formative Years".

That "boy on long" is Abe Lincoln. This's coin is ruined, hiding any errors that may have originally been there, if any. Post mint damage, no premium.
