    Found it coin roll hunting....Had to have been done by a machinist I believe...Or...
    if not a machinist....Then....By GOD Almighty?...… Either way, I'm gonna keep this
    cent....Whoever did cut it, it goes right through to the Reverse. Don't see this
    too often...Very Cool. S20180816_0003.jpg S20180816_0004.jpg

    That was done by someone with a drill, jigsaw, and a steady hand, or maybe someone with access to a punch press.
    It doesn't take a machinist, and it wasn't done by God.

    I could be wrong, but it looks like it might have been done using a plasma cutter?

    Very possible.
    Could be a CNC cutting machine, too.

    I have one of these too. Got it in a yard sale box. Looks exactly the same. Maybe the person made and sold them...???????

    Ran across many different coins roll hunting and what not over the years. Never a cross though.

    Like everything else that was given credit to God, it can be explained that it wasn't. Stamp, Saw, machinist.
