It would make a nice hole filler until something better comes along.

Just a normal coin for that year. The devices on that years coins, all have the same thing in common:
There was an issue with a swelling master hub that year and it was replaced the following year.
1. The motto devices are pushing into the rim area. (All coins that year show this, even proof coins)
2. All the devices look larger in size.
3. The size of the head is larger than on the 1969 cents:

Because they waited until the next year to replaced the new, new master hub, (yes I used the word New twice as each year the previous years aging master hub was reused over and over until there was an issue with it, so they have to create the new master hub with a fresh master hub. So the term new, new master hub was showing that it was a replacement master hub to replace the swollen old master hub) all the design differences we all common. note on the images how the the years design changed. It was still the same design, but without the years of distortion that had accumulated from years of creating the new master hubs of the previous years. This natural distortion can be seen on the 1982 small date and large dates. I took an image of the small dates and altered it with Photoshop and was able to create the same distortion:

Image below is of the altered swollen affect as the die ages. The devices are moved and enlarged when the master hub distorts:

Note the '2'. We see the same affect on the large and small dates on this area, just like this:

Compare these date distortions from the images above?
