Clearly a fake, only question is how it was made. Can you show us a close-up of the edge?

First,

It's a Magician's coin. The coin in the second pic was hollowed out on its reverse, and the coin in the top pic was cut down to fit the hollowed out area. You can see the evidence of the cutting on the top pic, most clearly visible below the portrait. It's a fun conversation piece for five cents.

On the first image the rims look funny, but on the second they look normal. It's a Magician's coin and may come apart. It does look like the second coin was hollowed out and the first coin was cut down to fit inside, as fortcollins noted.

You can win lots of coin tosses with this one. ALWAYS call heads!

Yes, it's clearly a Magician's coin.

The cut on the rim was why I assumed it was a fake cause it stands out pretty clearly. Fun find tho. Thx again guys

A nice find. Worth much more than 5 cents. Keep it.
