    Well, this one has two eyes (three if you count the hidden one.)

    My bad, the really rare three eyed cent was from 1957. The 1958 one is pretty common.

    My wife is a teacher, and she uses her summers to not only reset but to do a lot of projects, mainly around the house. About ten years ago she decided to hand paint our entryway walls in some way which escapes me, but there were different designs and it was very nice. However, as she went about this over days, she started to see little faces all over the walls at different points due to however she had designed this patten.
    I did not see them but once she pointed them out knew what she was talking about. They didn't bother me. She told me that she just couldn't unsee them, and that they were kind of spooky, and went on to paint over that with a design that is still on our walls.

    I’m amazed we’ve not heard from the “driving away newbies” concerned members in this thread. Waiting on the sermon.....😉

    The fumes can intensify this Pareidolly thing.

    She was on a creative mission over those days to get this done, not a lot of sleep and painting the walls alone at night.

    Been there done that, I usually drink beer or wine to offset any unforeseen challenges.

    With that title, I thought that you had an Ebay listing that was getting thousands of page views.

    What you have is a 1958 cent with a tiny die chip on Lincoln's eyelid and some machine doubling.

    I opened a new bank roll and found about a dozen of these. I sent it to Wiles/Fivaz/Daugherty/Coneca and got it listed with a nice letter and the coin in a discovery packet.
