question about this coin maybe an error

#1 Unread post by LarryDeLaRosa » Sun Apr 19, 2015 10:11 pm

Hi I have this penny I have had a couple of years. I started collecting about five years ago and came across this penny with what looks like a silver part of penny melted / stuck to the front of the copper penny. I always go through my change and found it. Could it be a mint error. Thanks Larry.

Hi larry, looks to me like 2 coins soddered together and they popped apart,leaving the impression of reverse of other coin.

I agree, two cents where soldered together and then fell apart.
