Nope. Coin 3 was split before the strike, sat on the anvil die, and had a normal planchet sit on top of it.

Look how well struck that obverse rim is, and how subdued those striations are, also there is a weak rim on the split side (in contact with collar die). The obverse shows a nice ghost effect from the obverse die.

This, is a coin from the same era, split after the strike.

thanks nickelsguy and SPP-Ottawa for your comments.

I think there always a lot of confusion between split after and before strike when a ghost image of the opposite side can be seen.

What I heard is that the split after strike is more scarce, so the comparison between the two versions is more difficult.

If we compare striations between my coin #3 and the split after strike presented by SPP-Ottawa, we see that the striations are smoother. That was my main clue for a split before strike.

Still skeptical Mike? Here is another coin, split after the strike. And, this one even has a ghost of the Queen, but look at the 3-dimensional nature of the metal.



and the other side

Here is another split after the strike, with both pieces. Again, note the 3-dimensional nature of the split surface.

I had that last one mounted in a PCGS Double slab. Both pieces were in a single CCCS soft flip... which boggled my mind. A net grade for two pieces. I think it showcases nicely in this presentation.

Wow!!!! Very nice coins.
Especially the one with the two pieces.

Nice demonstration of split after strike!
No confusion by now.
