Hello,

I found what looks like a Three pence but is missing one face and is hollow.. I have never seen anything like this before. I presume this was a fake coin at once stage but would love to here from knowledgeable folk on here as to what it is or what it was used for.. It is metallic touch and looks idententical to a regular three pence coin. I've posted pictures of both sides.




Thank you!

@pos, first welcome to CCF. Second, we see these from time to time on US coins and ascribe them to being either Magician's coins or spy coins. No numismatic premium for these since they are damaged by the hollowing process, but a fun find nonetheless.

Agree with Spence, it is one half of a Magicians coin that was
made from a genuine coin. Too bad you didn't have the other half.
