Is this a die cap or is it man made?

I think the coins are french 5 centimes from around the 1st world war.

    Okay. Someone had told me that a coin had gotten stuck in the machine and had to be drilled out after multiple coins had been pressed together....
    Appreciate the info!

    That person sure has an active (and faulty) imagination. :D

    In that scenario it would have been much larger than a normal coin, not to mention easy to remove from the die with all that extra bulk to pull on.

  • I started researching World War 1 trench art and it does appear that it was being turned into a ring. I appreciate you all breaking me off with some knowledge.
