    Just trying to figure out how this was done. My guess is a mini torch on the back which also distorted the front. Does that sound about right? Thanks: Lou 51.jpg 50.jpg

    The circle in the center is typical of a coin counting machine's damage

    I was in a restaurant once and the table had uneven legs. Somebody taped a nickel to the bottom of the leg to take up the space. I wondered what that nickel would look like when it returned to circulation..... Thing is, we never know how or why people do what they do to coins. But yeah, it can be fun sometimes trying to sleuth the answer out of the coin.

    1. place coin on cement floor.
    2. place toe on coin.
    3. give it a twist.
    4. pick up coin and see if it matches.

    Sure, I see damage, but stack the coin with a similar one and if the are the same diameter, it is die deterioration damage, and both obv die and rev die show it. The reverse is more overused, IMO,

    I like the coin counting theory. Obviously it was twisted (see the arch over the door), also damage in the form of a circle that extends about half way or a little more on each side of center. Just my sleuthy self having fun.
