My dad stored the wrecked automobiles from his wrecker service at an old guy's place. This old guy was quite a character to say the least. I saw him do this twice, he would not let me have the quarter but always said he would teach me someday, well, someday never happened. But, he would drill a 1/4" hole in the middle of a quarter and then while shooting the bull for an hour or so, he would "tap" on this quarter on an anvil and after an hour or so, the ridged edge would be inside the 1/4" hole and the outside of the quarter was smooth! And one side of the quarter was beat up from the ball peen hammer but the other side was picture perfect.
