    I can't make it out in the photos, but since you say the word LIBERTY is doubled... you found one of the very scarce double-struck 1972 pennies (called a "double die" minting error). Would be worth $150 or thereabouts if it wasn't pitted and corroded.

    Did anyone try to run it through electrolysis? That could explain the pitting.
