    Looks like a beat-up proof, nothing that special.

    @Matt97932... If the area you are talking about, is where the top of his nose meets the forehead, that looks like die chips. Cheers, RickO

    It looks just like the other eye , I can't find anything on about a Doubled eye have y'all ever heard of this before?

    Also a don't know what the camera is picking up but it's flawless even under my eyeloop.

    Take that back it's pitted really bad. And I couldn't see it while the coin was laying flat.

    Good questions and it’s always fun when we start to notice flaws. They made a gazillion of these and even the 40% silver is not rare. Kinda cool but not special enough to slab. Hang in there and hopefully others will give you thoughts that would help. Thanks 🙏

    If the OP is talking about the bridge of Washington’s nose – that’s not an extra ‘eye’
    It’s either a contact Mark, or some minor anomaly - I can’t tell from the photos

    Yep, what Fred said.
    If anything, look for the hard to find ddo on the Denver '76's! "LIBERTY" is doubled obviously. Esp the "LIBER".
