I only see damage.
There is a straight line going through his neck. Pull a penny out if you have to and look at it. The e also has a lamination error and the 5 is double die. I have a loop sorry my camera is not as good.

the UNI in United is missing from the back too .
being completely gone with no real sign of damage
makes me think you got something there , but unfortunately
being how circulated it looks. may be hard to prove without a known twin.
cool find :coffee2:

I agree with the damage and wear. The two rectangular marks on the obverse are from being hit with something. There are corresponding bulges on the back of the coin as evidence of this. The 5 is just flattened a bit from a hit. The missing UNI on the reverse could be from a grease filled die, but with so much wear and damage on the coin, it is hard to say for sure. Even if it is a filled die though, this is relatively common.
