    Done in a vise, most likely. See how the design and letters are reversed on the inset? Another coin was squeezed against this one.

    Thanks for feedback, ugly little mess. thats 2 coins in each pic, they looked molten at one time, they are still stuck together.

    Ah. Then, yeah, grilled up, or maybe just a thick layer of glue with the reversed impressions - that actually seems even more likely. You could try soaking them in acetone and see what happens.
