That is a US Large Cent fashioned into a pie crimper, used for putting a textured edge on the crust of a pie.

Cool looking tool. I was going to guess also a dough crimper like when making perogis or ravioli.
Kinda like this one:

I am thinking a pie crimper as well.
My Grandmother had a little tool that looked a lot like that one.
But not with a coin. Very cool find!

First off large cents were often used as ic they were simple copper discs as the foundation of an improvised tool.

Second when they were pulled out of circulation (post 1857) they were sold to scrap dealers as copper by the barrel.

The Penny Lady, Charmy, had an article in the Numismatist last year on these. And a wonderful exhibit if you happened to catch it.

You usually see just the coin. Finding the entire tool is much tougher. Somewhere out the there is one made from a 1793. I've seen pictures of it but it was a LONG time ago.
