Untrimmed

Untrimmed.  A fully struck medallic item which is intended to be trimmed, jigsawed, silhouetted or otherwise cut to a finished shape, but before this operation has been performed. An untrimmed specimen is usually an indication the item has been removed before completing its full manufacturing process. It is also a step exhibited in and a specimen of a process set.
