What in the world is counter stamped into this Large Cent?!

This one has me stumped. The lettering looks raised but is reversed....die struck? It is certainly one of a kind. Opinions please.

    Definitely someone messing around with a flying eagle to hammer into it. Probably trying to make a so called "error" to try and fool somebody.

    The above assertions appear to be accurate. PMD, likely with a view to sale as an error. Cheers, RickO

    Pressed coin?

    Not, the coin shows a regular strike, if pressed it would have had the design reversed

    The above photo doesn't represent the photos in the auction.
    It IS design reversed and thus a pressed coin.
