The obverse of this one looks kinda good, but the reverse less so. All those lines and whatnot on the reverse are raised, so not just scratches.

Since I'm not really sure what's going on here, figured I'd post it and see what folks think.

2000-D Sacajawea dollar - indent or no?

Post Mint damage.
Probably?:-
coin placed between two pieces of steel, then hit with a massive sledge hammer blow.

I have fooled around with coins occasionally like that myself.

It looks manufactured to me.

Deliberately damaged for sure.
There is no way that coin would fit in the collar when struck so
it must have been done afterwards.

I think it's a manufactured fake as well.
