Creating two halves of coin has many variables. Thickness of the blade to consider, holding it in a manner which would not create a noticeable scuff/mark on obverse/reverse, and to cut it exactly square like this example. What worries me more is modern 3d printing. Who would have thought such a thing possible ten years ago?

Excellent. I'd never catch that especially if you're not into the series.
The weight was properly what cause the alarm for the graders to look into it further.
