1875 large cent??

I have an 1875 penny but from what I've read they didn't mint any this year. Anyone know what this is?

Can you show a picture of the Obverse?
Always show pictures of both sides of a coin when posting.
Sometimes there is information on the other side as well.

Someone has "remodeled" an 1876 coin.... and did a nice job. The font for the "6" on the 1876 was very upright, so it wouldn't have been too hard to do. Look for any scratches/marks around the upper left and right. The photos aren't clear enough to see what's what.
