    They were fairly good!!!

    Yes I think so Jim. Do you think there is any way possible it was not done with a vice but rather just mashed against each other in a bag or something?

Looks like they had something at the edge near the first T of STATES to hold the coin in place while crushing the other side in... Thanks Jon for letting me take a look at this and getting the pics!!!
    Nice work Jim and great pics!! The overlay shows where everything came from very well! You don't need to worry with sending it back, maybe use it again in the future for vise job shots.

    It's much deeper than you would get from the normal bag marks from being handled in a bag unless they ran it over with a forklift or something.

    One thing I always add when we say a coin is a garage job is that yes some tricky people do things to coins to trick us but also with hundreds of billions of coins they get put through all sorts of abuse for other reasons, used as a spacer, maybe more than one so they mash into eachother, jammed in machines, used as screwdrivers or whatever so it's not easy to tell how or why or intentional or not.
