Anyone have a clue on something like the coin in these pictures. The pictures are real and I have the coin in my possession.

This is the coin that started my numismatic exploits a couple of years back and now I own a full set of Buffalo nickels, a full set of Morgan dollars, and many other fine coins.

Some here may say it is fake but I do not care, "I'm pretty sure they do not possesses one like it.

I know it has issues but I have never seen another like it.

No pics! Not much doubt the reverse was ground off, but we'd like to see it.

Sorry must have missed the camera button, but I'm pretty sure you will like the perfectly rounded edges of the reverse of this coin.

Do you know how to attach the pics that I have uploaded?

We've had many dozens of inquiries about one blank side coin.

In every instance I can remember they were all one side mechanically removed.

1892 and 1894. I found some nice examples recently, so they won’t be missing for long.

One-sided strikes are possible in unusual cases (split planchet, extra planchet) but they are exceptionally scarce and always have very distinctive die markers that indicate what happened.

It is also possible for circulation wear to obliterate one side of a coin after extensive wear -- as seen on the reverses of Bust & Liberty Seated silver coins more often than others. The other side is usually still heavily worn but still legible.

A much more common occurrence is the use of a Dremel-type tool to shave one side of a coin, in preparation for making a magician's "two-tails" or "two-heads" coin. The crafter will either get rid of the rim and sandwich the two coins together, or leave the rim intact and then grind down the rim of the 2nd coin to fit "inside" the first coin's rim. You can also use a bench grinder/disc grinder to achieve this effect.


Without seeing the coin in question the only advice I can offer is to have it authenticated by ANACS, PCGS, or NGC, or by a reputable coin dealer in your area.


To upload photos, click the "upload image" hyperlink below the box where you type in your text for the post. As noted, images should be under 300KB in size. When you click "upload image" a window will pop up to let you choose the folder/directory on your computer where the image is located. Once you select the file, click to upload it to the post.

The forums do not usually allow linking to photos that are stored on other websites (photobucket, imgur) so if that is what you are trying to do you need to download the photo from the other website and then upload it here.

Well said as usual. OP seems to be struggling with the photo upload process, which can be challenging at first.

@Ppincher1,

1. Click Switch to full reply button, and underneath the text field is a button to upload picture.

2. Click the upload picture button and navigate to picture location and select the picture you want to upload.

3. Repeat step 2 for each additional picture you want to upload.

And if picture larger than 300K, crop the background away first and try it again, if that is still to big to upload, used the image optimizer and upload the image once it is saved out from the optimizer.
