That is some vice job!

It looks like someone took a nickel and squeezed a Lincoln cent reverse into both sides of it - it does NOT look like a genuine mint error, IMO.

That being said, they really managed to squeeze a LOT of the Lincoln Memorial reverse detail into the nickel. How exactly did they accomplish this? Did they heat up the nickel in a furnace to soften it, first?
