    It is a "Texas cent" you can make them by putting a cent between two pieces of leather and pounding it with a hammer. It enlarges the coin without losing the design.
    GH#75, paddyman98 and TexAg like this.

    Looks like a "Texas Penny", hammered between 2 pieces of leather to mash the coin flatter and larger in diameter.

    Now the next question to ask?..
    Why would someone do this?..
    Because they can :blackeye:
    Because they were bored :yawn:
    Because the wanted to create confusion o_O

    And just in case.. Is it worth anything more than 1 Cent?
    The answer would be no! :yack:
