A 1964D Quarter too!! Why not a stinking Penny?
I used to cut coins when I was a much younger person selling “Cutco” cutlery. I’t looked cool and was a great sales-pitch tool. I’m not all so proud of that action now.
Agree, the cuts are too regular (perfectly parallel) to have been made by hand. But if it was a shredder, it was the Shredder of Death. (Not to be confused with the Grim Reaper.)
Why because it was so light the tender wouldn't stay on the track.
@dwhiz ! Have you ever put a coin on your tracks?
It would probably cause a crash,huh?
Yeah…. That little demo cost me $500.00. I bought the scissors!
Ah, but why? It’s much more interesting in its present state. It will remain a damaged coin, regardless, so might as well leave it as a coin with interesting damage rather than an interestingly damaged and then re-flattened coin.
@dwhiz - if you cut up that dime for your railroad, hopefully it’s a clad.
At least the quarter in the OP retains most of its bullion value, meaning it’s really not worth a whole lot less than an undamaged 1964-D circ quarter would be.
Rob, the dime is a 1985.
Ah, there is so much I overlook when squinting at my phone screen.
