Help please, I found this in February of 2019 in a box of pennies while searching for error coins. I know this is supposed to be impossible, but after numerous photos and study of the detail of the devices, I believe it to be a legitimate overstrike,

As far as the mirrored images, they should not exist on the obverse and reverse of one single coin, however, please notice that the mirrored images are also detected on the rim of the cent as if they wrap around the rim itself.

Hopefully, one of the members of our community will provide me with contact information of an unbiased expert that can put in the time necessary to properly study the cent and authenticate it, or determine if it has been manipulated.
Thanks for your input.

Damaged coin. It was squeezed in a vise with two other coins on each side of it. Just a damaged coin.

The Clue? The letters are mirrored because they came off another coin. If it had some off a die, the devices would look normal and raised and not incuse like they show on your coin.

and wow. coin is a victim, of being squeezed with another cent,

See how the letters are reversed, that can only happen by being pushed into another coin..

Not an error..

As mentioned squeezed between two other coins, but one thing not mentioned is that it was squeezed twice with movement of the outer coins in the sandwich between squeezings.

True, but if the letters had come from a brockage or capped die they would also be reversed and incuse. I would agree though that that isn't the case with the OP coin.
