I have always wondered why someone takes the time to intentionally deface any coin or paper money. Are they trying to be artistic? Rebelling against Big Brother? Bored to the extent they need to damage something?
As stated in previous posts, I spend a lot of time CHR. I find the most bizarre cents, nickels, dimes, quarters, and halves TOO.
I save these weird pieces of various metal configuration. I have a set of Lincoln, Jefferson, Roosevelt, Washington, and even Ben that were coated in a red enamel fingernail polish or paint. A set of blue coloring as well.
Another set has 1 hole somewhere drilled into the coin. A set of 2 holes per coin has also been set aside. Keep in mind these coins are only FACE VALUE, mostly modern from the 40's to date.
Anyone collect ROADKILL Coins? I have many, many that were treated to the experience.
Then you get to why did someone intentionally use snipes or a cutting tool to cut, but not remove the entire area cut. It is still attached causing the coin to become 2 daggers looking for a place to cause damage.
I have coins with sodar, all letters but Q counter marked somewhere on the coin, counter sunk quotes, businesses, and names are a few.
Feel free to include the weird things that have somehow found a way into your collection.
