Ugly By Design

You Poor Poor Thing

1970 and Before

ikaros' 1859 Canada 1 cent

Holed coins bother me, at least those holed in a way to be a pendant. I can understand one holed in a manner to be used as a button or something; a large copper cent or half-cent was probably going to be more durable than a wood or shell button. This poor thing not only has a hole, it's got about 20° die rotation.

ScottO's ca. 1649 England half groat

A boring design at the best of times, however holed and clipped with wear, it looks worse
