      It's not easily found because I would imagine it does not come from the mint that way. It's like an after market thing. That's just my guess but I do believe I'm correct. Take it to your local coin dealer and I bet they will tell you the same. I would definitely take it in and please, let us know about it after.

      Your penny is odd as 1920's penny is called wheat penny and the color usually is copper unless it was made of steel. Wheat pennies from the 1920's back usually imprinted the word "One Cent" and yours it doesn't look like that. The masonic imprinted on the coin was made by someone, not by machine error. My opinion was someone attempted to counterfeit your coin making it like rare. Keep in mind there's money on error coins but the error should be made by the machine, not by human hand. Find a coin store and see what they have to say. I am curious as well.
