Hack silver

Recommended Posts

This is way off topic, though it is about tools, and so about tool making and such.  Does anyone know what sort of tools (if any) were used to cut "hack silver" and other tokens of trade (like doubloons and pieces of eight)?  I suppose that it's possible that this is more story than reality, but I would like to know.

I would guess its knife or axe and hammer and then a whole lot of haggling!
