You would think there would be some displaced metal along the cut area, no?
It looks like someone was trying to create a clip, but didn't have the strength to cut it all the way through. A pair of "curved-blade" nippers would cause this.
I doubt it, metal would be displaced towards the handle and the cut would be irregular being deeper to shallow, diagonal pliers can't do this nor can fingernail clippers or end nippers. There are no "curved-blade" nippers that I'm familiar with and I was in the electrical industry for 40 years. Fingernail clippers are curved the opposite way. JMHO
Only for inverted fingers. Lol
I don't know if there are curved-blade nippers or not. It was just a thought since the position of the (curved) damage on the reverse seems to correspond to the position of the (curved) damage on the obverse. Does anyone know of a tool that could create such a cut?
There is no way that (even) clippers made for pedicures could match that shape, and I don't think the gap between the two blades would be wide enough to allow a nickel to pass through. I don't think nail clippers of any kind could make a cut as wide as that shown on the obverse.
Plenty of room.
Damaged with a pair of nail clippers.
Post damage photo. I just did this in the last 5 minutes.
That's a crock! Those are clippers for rhino toenails.
@paddyman98 ?? I bet he has a odd ball emoji or some crazy picture!! Lol.
PDM. One cut to the obv and two one the rev. It wouldn’t happen at the mint!
