I'm almost sure it's a broad strike. The coin was struck on a normal planchet, but outside of the retaining collar so it wasn't limited to the normal diameter of 19.05 mm. Do you happen to know the diameter of your coin? Not that it will change my answer, I'm just curious.
The first US coin motto was found on a 1792 half disme and read: "LIB (erty) PAR (ent) OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY"

What me wonder is, how does it have a reverse rim? Makes me wonder it is was struck once in the collar and once out of the collar, exactly on the devices both times. Most of the time the devices will be enlarged on the second strike:



Note the enlarged devices on the second strike enlarged from the first strike?

Coop,
If not a broad strike then what do you think it is?

Is there any chance this could be a "Texas cent" that was also a dryer coin? Is it thinner than a regular cent?

It is a little thinner. It is the coin on top beside another 1972 penny

Braodstruck was my first thought but something looked "off" about the design.
I don't know why anyone would fake a 1972 cent other than 1972 is popular for faking because of all the Doubled Dies.

The bottom point on the 2 on the date looks wrong, the pair of S's on STATES seem wrong, and something seems off on the bust but I can't put my finger on it. I don't know if these distortions can be caused by being broadstruck.

It does have a struck rim so it would need to have been struck twice, once in the collar and then out of collar, like Coop said.

Maybe it is on a foreign planchet- Chinese.
Maybe ,just maybe, "they" were trying to perfect their fake dies or venturing into error coins?

Ok, guys! Can not thank you enough. Consensus is broadstrike, but with other questions, is this something I should send in? If so to whom and where?

I would like to know what Mike Diamond thinks. "If" you send it in,ANACS will cost you the least.
