This is the first time I've found one of these with the loop still attached. Since we get questions about these coins in bezels often enough I figured to post this one as an example of what they look like complete. Might make it easier for new folks to visualize what is going on with such coins after the loop gets snapped off.

Interesting to see something common like a cent bezeled. I wonder if this was someone's birth or marriage year

Depending on how it was mounted in the holder. Pressed in could damage the coin. Soldering it in place could affect the coin. So I would leave it in the holder to sell that way. Removing it might reveal a damaged coin worth face value. So the choices are yours.

I always encourage the posting of additional on-topic photos! Really adds to the discussion and makes the thread more useful down the road. Interesting that you actually found one complete in the ground. Maybe that protected the dooflicky from getting knocked off.

This one won't get removed or sold, just added to my collection as a whatnot. I generally don't keep this kind of stuff and toss them in the cull bag, but this one gets kept.

Or it may have tightened the rim bending it into that position?
Many times they are solder on to the coin:


They called them 'Love Tokens' back in the day. They only cost a silver dime, which they were lots of them then. They were used to for events, weddings, birth years, or as gifts with them engraved.
