    If you CRH, you will undoubtedly come across coins that have seen a diagonal cutter. Folks are curious or bored...and with a tool and a coin. Damage. Not all damage is undesirable. You will also find counterstamped coinage out there and there is a market for it. For early counterstamped coins, there are books on the subject.

    This coin however is damaged. Some tool or harder object was used to create the damage.

    That's what a small chisel is for.

    If you do any hedge/rosebush trimming there are things called "anvil pruning shears" which have one side a flat (sometimes plastic flat surface) and then the other half is the cutters.
    In Cub Scouts I recall many trying to cut pennies in half and use anvil shears as the flat/soft half holds the coin in place better than two cutters. We'd also make christmas trees and other things out of coins (by drilling a hole in the middle for a toothpick shaft glued in).
