I recently bought a bag of coins and this is one of the few that I cannot identify.

I found a similar coin with the same exact obverse at this website, the reverse being different (scroll down): 

The obverse shows the liberty bell with a bird (possibly the bald eagle), with the word "Centennial" on the top and "1776-1876" on the bottom. 

The reverse has a bunch of long words in a curved fashion. Many of the words have letters which are legible, but there are enough hard to read letters that I cannot make out the full words. This may be a moot point due to the fact that I don't think any of the words are actual words.

Along the very top of the reverse, it looks like it says to the best of my ability: "PIC=NICK (or rick) & SUM AERNACNESFEST"

Along the very bottom of the reverse it looks like it says to the best of my ability: "AD. 25 CES" 

The reverse also has the date: "1876" on it

Can anybody identify this coin?
