    Does anyone know what could cause this dent? I just wonder if it's an actual error or if someone did something to it ..I've never seen anything like it before 6ecf4e93-8514-4492-9862-611ddbfcd405.jpg 6ecf4e93-8514-4492-9862-611ddbfcd405.jpg 3e06ebef-40b6-407c-bb21-6f1b2438fd44.jpg 821994d9-f5bd-409d-9057-7c13c9f99a00.jpg b103478a-8f0c-4c98-bd30-4d4d9ad6ca24~2.jpg

    Look at the reverse, you can see the damage at the ER of AMRICA.

    That resulted when someone 'punched' the obverse .
    And caused the metal flow to the reverse.

    Glad you included the reverse as that shows it’s been damaged in the obverse. One look at the date and the object that caused that is just too round shaped to be natural.

    When I was a kid we used to put dents in coins just like that with our Daisy BB guns when using pennies for target practice. It's a pre-zincker so perhaps this is one of them.

    Some one was practicing their skills with a BB gun?

    I used a .22 single shot bolt action rifle.

    Same here, but pre-teen years, it was the Daisy BB Gun, then the Crosman .22 pellet gun, and then by the time I was in junior high, we were shooting the Savage Arms Stevens Model 15-A Single Shot bolt action .22 that had been in the family for nearly two generations before me. Meaning, my grandpa had it, then my father had it and then when I was in junior high, I had it.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this was the standard .22 that was used in traveling carnivals at the target shooting/prize booths. I know it was the firearm used exclusively by the Boy Scouts at one time (from researching the weapon) and was sold by Sears / Roebuck.

    Still have mine. Got a .410 at 9, and a .22 at 12. Still have both 50 years later and shoot both with the grandkids.

    Any pix of these to share? I'll post pix of the .22 I was talking about next week. I just got done giving it some seriously long overdue TLC.

    I will try and remember to take one when I get back close to them, probably a month from now.
