I think that crease is normal.  It is on the vamp, not the toe-cap/wing.  All shoes crease there.
PSA:   Joseph A Banks 66% off sale this weekend + free shipping = shoe trees for $8.50.   http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_101593   I'm picking up a few.
Following tho thread is probably the best way to hear about Shoebank sales and specials when (and sometimes before) they happen.   When you get an inventory list it reflects the current prices, including any current sales (well, except things like two-for-$250, which are obviously applied afterward).

Is there any chance that this thread can make some sense of the Allen Edmonds naming conventions?

You are literally the third person to ask this exact question (owning the same shoes, even) in the past couple days. So, check back a few pages for more suggestions, too.EDIT: I see I'm not the only one to notice this pattern. I don't think it's anything nefarious. Everyone starts with PAs and Strands.
