    Hello everyone, I have came across a five cent coin that seems to have a divit punched in it. My daughter and I were digging in back yard looking for old bottles and about 1 1/2 down she pulled up this coin. It's rough but it is still readable. The divit is smooth no jagged edges almost perfectly round. The back side has a slight bump from indentation. I tried to set a steel bb inside it and bb is to big, that was the first thing I thought, but the indentation has a small bur around edge so what ever hit it either came out with force or it was agienst something solid when struck to push bur out. Hoping for some insight and thoughts. Thanks fir your time. 20240413_214815.jpg IMG_20240413_214916_HDR.jpg 20240413_233013.jpg 20240413_232305.jpg 20240413_233108.jpg

    What are you doing exhuming a dead nickel? That nickel was resting in peace.

    Just joking. Honestly, it could be several things, but to me, inside the hole looks like a small drill attempt of some kind…imo…Spark
