    I just took a look and actually found this one in the catch all draw. The date was obliterated, but it is likely late sixties or seventies. I remember the day it was shot and as I remember it took a considerable amount of time to find. Also dug some .30 cal rounds out of the sand bank.

    Looking at the pictures at the start of the tread, the penetration looks all wrong for a high velocity projectile. Looks more like a pressed or hammered through hole as the metal all goes in one direction and there is no spalling around the entrance. Those examples were likely created in a workshop and not at a firing range and aged afterwards (IMO).

    interesting thread ,i must be living under a rock as i havent heard of this kind of thing before ,but it takes me back some years as a child i questioned my great grandfather over his strange looking thumb scarring ,i recall he said he was hit by a turkish sniper bullet during the gallipoli campaign, but anyway back to these coins i would say simply striking these with a stamp punch ,then pushing through a bullet would amount to the desired effect ,a novel display piece but for originality ,best to avoid

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
