I received this brass encased 1920D penny when I was a child... From Chicago in the 1950's, it has so far defied an explanation of why or what it was used for. I posted it on Collectors Universe and saw postings for a 1919 penny and 1907 and 1900 Indian Head pennies. Those coins had the same brass case, but had 3 holes drilled equidistant around the coin.
Any thoughts? Not a gear, not a car distributor points gap, a spacer???
