Egg Shaped Encased Cent

I was and still am intrigued about this piece. "ONE CENT PER HEN CLUB" when entered into "google search" brings up a lot of articles from turn of the century(1900 - 1920) poultry journals about various feeds and remedies that cost less than 'one cent per hen'. I am not convinced that this is the answer, but clearly this encased cent had something to do with chickens and eggs! Also since the encased coin is a 1973 D cent it is more modern then the mention in the Poultry Journal.
