Die Stamped

A stamping die is used to cut shapes from a sheet of metal. A sharp-edged die is placed on the metal and hammered until it cuts through the underlying metal. These dies sometimes have a design on them that is embossed into the metal shape that is being cut. In 1769, John Pickering, a London toymaker, patented his machine for stamping articles out of sheet metal.
