Being new to the coin roll hunting scene.. This is probably one of the most interesting pennies I have seen.. Legit? Or fake?

Someone has pressed coins together in a vise to make it look as if it's an error. The reverse lettering is something to look for when the impression didn't come from a die. That along with the other damage on the coin, points to modification, and not a mint error.
