    Hello Friends,
    I've been working so much that I haven't had time for shopping or anything else.
    This is a find from a few weeks ago. I thought it was just wonderful, never seen one before.
    It's an actual 1905 U.S. Quarter with the face of Liberty pushing through it.
    I was hoping that I could learn something about it from my friends here on CW.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks and Happy Christmas holidays to all!,
    Tony.

    5. Roycroftbooksfromme1, 7 years ago
      Most likely they heated the coin then stamp it out ..right aroud that time was the womens movment going in on ,,just my guess
    6. Budek Budek, 7 years ago
      Thanks for the love, Tom, and Thank You to pops and Roycorftbooksfrommer1 for the helpful comments,
      much appreciated!!!
    7. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Roy, I was just coming back to say that they certainly had to be heated but you beat me to it.
    8. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Actually, that must have been double sculpted dies for either side & compensating for the thickness of the metal.
    9. Roycroftbooksfromme1, 7 years ago
      yep blunder the dies are a given... but trying to connect to womens suffrage as one of there pins., will take some time if thats the case..
    10. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Where did women's lib./ suffrage come in? Thought that was over when the check arrived at the table & they had us sleeping on the wet spot! I am definitely going to hear more from from that!!! LOL!!
    11. SEAN68 SEAN68, 7 years ago
      Your very welcome Tony!!
    12. Roycroftbooksfromme1, 7 years ago
      some were around 1904 -5 ..ended in 1920 I beleave when they got the right to vote...and there where some militent one's at that time as well ...lol

      Tony, Check out this link on the patent for the die used in this process.

      http://www.google.com/patents?id=pslNAAAAEBAJ&pg=PA1&dq=775826&source=gbs_selected_pages&cad=0_1#v=onepage&q&f=false

    16. Roycroftbooksfromme1, 7 years ago
      great job pops ...saw the patten # on esty but never thouht to run it ....well done
    17. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      I believe I am correct saying it is illegal to deliberately destroy or deface U.S. currency & notice that this use isn't mentioned in the patent.
