I came across some old coin rolls my husbands grandmother gave him years back that we forgot about.. I'm not a coin collector but this one stood out & I was thinking it was just damaged but the more I look it looks like a design or letters stuck to the side. Anyway most of you really seem to know yalls stuff..
So any advice would help..
hope the pics are viewable!
Thanks again!

I agree it has a bit of unique damage. But it was done to the coin after strike. Thanks, Doug.

Just a guess, but I think it might have been pounded into some kind of spiked bezel for a good luck charm. Usually those coins have rim damage but it is smooth. They were also mass produced. This may have been part of a home-made charm.


dbrablec, the poster is not a collector so wouldn't have knowledge about the minting process.

Many things like this were done. And still are. Another thing people do is spoon the coins
