As most of you know I'm no expert but check this out if you already haven't. Looks like a vice job to me

Your right.
Not an error coin. A vise job.
Another coin has been pressed into it' numerous times.

Looks like it to me too. I don't think the cent image would be mirrored if it was actually struck in the mint

There is so much trash on there. I did get a spilt planchette cent this week for $8, shipping included. I'll post it when it arrives.

Yep, another crap coin. There's way too much junk on eBay, and it makes my blood boil everytime! And the stupid bidders are spending a fortune on a coin that's worth face value.

You called that one right. It is a shame that there is no way to stop this kind of junk sales.

This nickel is undoubtedly awesome and has been look at and authenticated by the local numismatic chapter.

Now we need Bobby131313 to try to remove this listing, as the bids are getting out of control. Although, maybe we should just let the buyer learn the very hard way maybe? I'll let you decide. What do you think?

How can one know it isn't a mint employee "Mint-assisted" error, with a possible die cap? Think...ding...DING...ding...ding, time's up!

So what's the answer? Hummm? The Canadian mint seems to pull a rabbit like this outta the hat every other year, what about the US? Hmmm? I'll come back in a few hours to see if anyone can give a real logical, succinct answer...



Coop, Conder, you guys stay away...kiddies table only!

Hmm I have no idea Crazyb0. I was trying to read the date of the Nickel to see if it even was from the same year as a Memorial back cent would be but no luck. I doubt that's the answer though, it's probably more obvious than it seems. I'll check back for an answer too.

Well Butch. For one the coin is oblong not round. Two the reverse would be fully struck if it were a capped die. That's all I got.

Nickel on top of a piece of leather, Memorial cent placed on top, leather folded over both, and placed in a conical iron depression. After several failed attempts and adjustments scammer gets a good smack with a 2 pound mechanics hammer and this thing is repeated on both sides.
If enough experimentation were done all kinds of cynical stuff can be made...created.

As coinbuffalo said, ONE CENT is reversed which is usually a dead giveaway of a vice job I would think.
