Quote: I agree. Wish I knew how they do the double sided ones like this. The design is perfectly lined up on both sides. Must have some sort of contraption that holds the obverse against that die then the die that is struck is swung into a predetermined spot directly above the other.
Did that make any sense? Lol.
Back a few years ago there was a guy who took an entire set of Jefferson nickels and stamped them front and back with a political statement. I remember seeing the video. He used a type of press that held a die in the top and the bottom. He held the nickel in place so both dies would press into the coin at the same time when he pulled the lever down. The mechanism obviously had enough leverage to make the impression in both sides easily.
