@wb1, first welcome to CCF. Second, it looks like you are showing a nickel that has been hollowed out and joined with a copper or brass section. We see Magician's coins like this with some frequency, but in that case there are two coins matched together. I'm not convinced that you have that here. I do see a very small drilled hole in the O of OF. I wonder if you could stick a pin into that and see if the two halves separate?

Ok let's give it some time for others to weigh in with their ideas. Whatever has happened, this coin definitely didn't leave the mint looking like this.

Does it rattle like there is something inside there? It looks like a more modern version of this spy coin:

Squirting nickel? Thanks, Doug.

Halo got it.

See the hole in the O in OF. The blank side flexes. You push in on it and hold it under water and release the pressure to fill it. Then when you are handing it to someone you apply pressure and it squirts them with water from the hole.

The older versions looked like a Buffalo nickel, and when you squirted your stooge, you claimed that it was a "water" buffalo.

Nice job @halo1st! I hadn't heard of a squirting nickel prior to this thread.

There was one posted on CCF some time ago, but I failed short finding the topic. A goggle search will show its another way to alter a coin to make a novelty item worth a few dollars to some (pending it works). Thanks, Doug.
