Step1: 
       use the hammer to flatten the penny as thin as possible without tearing the metal
besides making it sharper it work hardens the metal, making it stronger.
Step2:
      cut the penny into a sharp wedge shape, about 30 degrees.

useless and non practical, couldn't last a through even 1 target if you could by some means attach it to an arrow.
im sorry to correct you on what you think you know, but if it is attached properly, using the old cordage and pine method, it is very functional
Well, how exactly do you put the arrowhead to the arrow?
i use cordage since thats the purpose of the notches, then dip it in a little bit of pine tar, and cook the the tar with fire, if done right you get a VERY sturdy arrow tip
not a arrow head!
i learned how to do this in boy scouts it works just fine

ouch what did you hammer that on, concrete? find a smooth metal surface to hammer on and it'd be easier to shape.
