Could be some "ghosting", otherwise just a world-weary nickel
The lines from the roof to the rim looks like it could be Jefferson's neck
The word liberty and the date, also the word monticello possibly some doubling on some letters of the word, and I can't show it in the photos but if I turn it a certain way I think I see faded letters on the reverse
And on the obverse around his mouth
What is ghosting
I'm not seeing it. I think you may be looking too hard at an already worn coin.
No. But keep swinging, you may find something.
Ghosting is more correctly PIDT (Progressive Indirect Design Transfer) where the die gets "deformed" by the design on the other side and starts to leave a ghostly image. http://www.error-ref.com/progressive-indirect-design-transfer/
This is ghosting so the image is in the correct position which is upside down. It just as @Kentucky explained. Lincoln’s outline is on the reverse. Both are in my collection.
Separate names with a comma.
