How To Make A Lure Out Of A Flattened Penny

This is a hint cutesy, but I must admit, the body of the lure turns out looking pretty professional. No doubt this would catch fish, though I don't entirely follow the snap-swivel placement. Seems like something my grampa would have done and when I asked why he put it there, he would have just said, "because that's where it goes!" I don't have a fancy penny press at home, but there are railroad tracks nearby.
