- I suspect that the dime was clamped between two metal cylinders or
discs slightly smaller than the dime itself. That would account for
the damage to the obverse and reverse. Then the edge was either
tapped with a hammer or rolled under pressure until the rims met the
side of the cylinder/disc. I'm sure other scenarios can be imagined.
