    Iíve not seen them cut to make change. I think thatís what you are getting at, like cut Spanish silvers.

    If it were cut to make a smaller denomination, Iíd think it would be cut vertically. And that looks like more than 50% to me. I believe that it was broken, which I also donít see often. I do see trimes broken, on a regular basis, but their thinness makes this more likely.

    If someone cut it, you should be able to see where they laid a knife on it, then hit the spine with a ďhammerĒ and scored the coin. If the break is completely ragged, with no scoring, then it was not cut. JMHO.

    Great find either way sir.

    It does look like it was broken, the edge is jagged. Good call!
