This is a trick coin and not a mint error; no where during the minting process can something like this happen. I have a three cent nickel from 1965 that fits inside another coin and has the same mill lines.

It is a neat coin though.

What kind of 'trick' would this coin b good for? Besides when I got it on ship from the DK's it was most likely in a roll of quarters direct from mint-base-ship (I'm fairly sure the navy doesn't use BofA or Wells Fargo) If memory serves, the ships in my ARG would fill da 6 mth payroll vault b4 WestPac with most on da LHA Tarawa. Kinda hard 2 believe it's a trick coin.

What it looks like is some kind of round punch used on the eagle side breaking the face side out except there's no evidence of damage on the eagle. tell me, r US coins solid thru? Cuz if u look edge on at da broken face, it looks kinda like this.

Like there's a tiny sideways y just inside the rim.

It was designed for a magic trick where one passes a cigarette through the coin.

mmmmmmmm, this is intriguing, i have not seen this before,.......

so, if you 'measure' the "front side piece", the part that 'fell out' of the reverse shell,..... what do you get as the "diameter" ?
(it looks machined down to me,.....any 'reeding' on that piece too ?)

:eureka:
this reminds me of the 'magic trick' penny to dime, & so on......
but i do not hugeeyes this as a 'MINT ERROR' here,.......
D, wat u tink ?

:confused:
pencil through coin trick ??

OIC. Yeah, it's possible. The hole might fit a cig but then how did it get on my ship?! This coin has a story to it but chances r I'll never know. It's still a cool coin but you have dashed my hopes of finding that 1 in a million coin! lol.
