    Nice pics! Looks like it has something to do with the collar to me. I'd say probably a tilted partial collar strike. Let's see what the others say, though.

    This could be a railroad rim coin.

    Is the diameter slightly greater than a normal cent?

    Aligning it with a normal coin, one side is the same size, and the other side is just slightly larger. I Googled railroad rim and that seems to fit.

    And that's caused by a partial collar strike, right?

    Probably so, it looks like a railroad rim.

    Sometimes an ex encased can also look that way but then you might see the border of the holder on both sides and the coin can also be bigger from the crushing.

    Nice find... I'm in with the railroad rim... Our Glossary points to a Partial Collar Strike -

    Partial Collar Strike: This occurs when a coin is struck which its edge only partially contained in the collar. The part of the edge which is contained in the collar is constricted from expansion as normal, but the portion not contained in the collar expands abnormally as a broad struck coin would. This creates a bi-level edge which resembles the wheel of a railroad car, and thus these are colloquially called “railroad rims.” This is somewhat of a misnomer, however, since the edge is really the part showing the effect, more so than the rim. Photo examples pending.


    Hope that helps!!!
