Being a CONECA rep, I see all sorts of wonderful and wierd stuff come to the table. For those that haven't seen what a possible "squeeze job" looks like, I have one for your entertainment. It looks like the extra TRUST on the obverse is from a nickel. If you closely at the opposite side of the coin, you will see additional damage, probably from a vise or other tool.

The area of concern is extremely deep as noted on the reverse. Plus there is additional damage by the "A" in AMERICA".

Typically if it is of another denomination, the extra lettering from a different coin would NOT be backwards. There is one exception that I can think of off the top of my head - Brockages may have reversed lettering, but they are typically done with the same type coins. For example, a Brockage of a cent on a cent or nickel on a nickel.
