    900fine doggone it people like me

    Notice how both portions have the same amount of wear ? I figure either
    a) they circulated separately and were miraculously reunited - like the reunion of twins separated at birth
    b) they miraculously circulated together all those years
    or
    c) some sap sawed it in two and the whole auction is another e-bay scam
    You decide ! :D

    I haven't logged into Heritage to see how much it's quarter sold for...

    Not my expertise by a long shot

    I suppose if Heritage auctioned it, it was somehow authenticated as a true split planchet.

    So far to date in the past 6months,I have seen 2 supposed "split" coins both in anacs holders.:rolleyes:,one standing liberty that split,right after circulation in 1917,and somehow managed to stay together for almost 100 years,and a indian head penny,at least the indian looked like a true lamination,that someone peeled in half.

    I'm no metallurgist, but couldn't repetitive and rapid freeze-thaw cycles produce this result?

    Didn't I hear that there have been a few Chinese counterfeits that have slipped through certification and grading at TPGs?

    If this is true, then...

    Did anyone else notice there is a link to this auction in the auction forum.

    Can anyone say... foot in mouth?

    In all seriousness, perhaps the person could fill us in a little about the specimen and the split. That would be nice... :) As I stated before, not my area of expertise but it would be cool to learn more.

    I guess he didnt see this thread started the other day or he probably would not have posted that in the auction forum ;)

    I'd love to hear how the coin split... or was found split.
