Coin is re-struck with edge lettering and a double eye on the obverse and the reverse re-strike isn't discernible to me. Any thoughts on what the re-strike image may be on the reverse? Am I correct in my analysis of the coin?

The letters on the edge above WE look to be incuse and would be PSD from the letters on another coin being mashed into this coin.

the anomaly on the back though appears to be some type of planchet flaw that happened before it was plated with copper. It is pretty large.
Congratulations.

I'm sorry but I don't know what PSD is? Is it worthwhile to have a coin like this graded?

@good, PSD=post strike damage. Sorry for all of our jargon. I don't think that this coin is worth getting graded as it looks like someone has damaged it in an effort to simulate a mint error.

Goodstuff1,
See where the PMD is blue in color, that means you can click on it for more info.

This is not a mint error. Someone took two coins and pressed them together, possibly with a vice. These vice jobs come up on the forum often.

The inverted letters pressed into the rim above WE look like TRUST imprinted from an older cent.

Agree, deliberate mischief.
