12 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle Cut From a Dime


From the website:


Now you can call me crazy.

Since I started doing this a lot of people have.

I introduced these "Numismatic (Coin) Jigsaw Puzzles" as a joke to a customer in Texas who is always trying to stump me and coin cutting has taken a crazy turn since.

With a steel blade only .002" thick, I cut little jigsaw puzzle pieces from any coin.

The very time consuming process includes hand-cutting one piece at a time, cleaning fine dust, waxing each piece with a Q-tip, and reassembling with a pair of tweezers.

I originally sold them loose in a box, but browsers found it unbelievable that they would go back together.

I now sell them in 2"x2" plastic coin snaps.

You can leave it in the case or take it apart, just make sure to have aspirin, tweezers, and patience to put it back together. 

All dime puzzles are 12 pieces, no two are alike, and all come assembled.

Very cool idea & a really nice cut. Do you use a magnifying glass when cutting?
