@ang, first welcome to CCF. Second, it looks to me like someone sandwiched this cent between two others and the compressed hard enough to transfer some of the details from the out two coins to this one. Then it looks like they heavily polished it.

Looks like a vice job. The second image is incuse and reversed, so definitely not from a double strike.
My best finds:

also looks to be plated to resemble the elusive 44 steel cent. All just damage.

vice job, not a mint error, deliberate PMD. No premium.

The coin was squeezed more that once. Some of the letters that transferred are doubled and slightly overlapping from slight rotation of the coins used to make the impressions seen on LIBERTY on the reverse and the letters of UNUM on the obverse with many other areas as well.

It looks like as many as 4 or 5 (more?) coins were destroyed while making this "Vise Job." As noted this happened outside of the mint, Post Mint Damage, so it's not an error.
The first US coin motto was found on a 1792 half disme and read: "LIB (erty) PAR (ent) OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY"

And thank you all for the welcome! I picked up a large amount of coins from an estate auction turns out a father-in-law of homeowner was a coin dealer and when he passed they became the owner of all these coins which have now passed to me. Some have been polished, #128555; most have not thank goodness. I came across this one because it was in the bag of polished but there's still a lot to go through. Hope to bring more to you all and get input cause I'm very new at this! Thanks again everyone.

Thank you Coop, that makes absolute perfect sense to me now! Actually I feel like I should be saying duh or something because it is so obvious to me. After reading your message I picked up a penny and felt like a big dummy. I'm reminded of something my grandpa would always say to me when I was struggling to figure something out, he'd say, "you better be careful always thinking so smart one day it just might make you stupid!" He would usually follow with a big laugh and then show me the answer I needed which was always so simple it would never cross my mind.
