    Looks like notches on a gunfighters Colt.
    Maybe the number of times the person won the toss...

    PMD, looks like someone put those marks there to see if "what goes around may come around." If ever! Just a opinion.

    It is notched for the number of times it has been presented as an error, only for the hopes and dreams to be dashed here.

    Come on, guys. Give him a break. He just wanted to know what happened. Morse Code.. you're kidding, of course. Maybe it was made for a Boy Scout merit badge.

    Somebody read that they're not supposed to hold a valuable coin with their bare hands, so they used vise grips.

    Of course I was kidding, lol. Everything here is in jest as the op knows. Once you have attributed it to PMD there are myriad ways to damage a coin and reasons why, so we are just being lighthearted
