Default Coin Pen

My first attempt at using coins to accent a pen. I used a dental drill to do this one and I'm limited as to the areas I can get into. I have ordered a jewelers saw and will try using that on the next one. These are very time consuming but the results make for a very nice pen.
I used a Baron pen kit, with the coin on the cap and the bottom is Mesquite wood. A very close Texas friend has already laid claim to it.

Move over Seamus we have a new player in the coin cutting field. Very nice. Did you thin the coin and if so how did you do it??
