    I am thinking of buying this coin but not sure. This is the sellers pictures and description:


    strike error, coin is slightly larger than regular nickel, and slightly smaller than a quarter and split planchet and thinner-4th photo, this coin in on bottom, regular nickel on top


    Any opinions on how this error happened?

    Would this be a coin worth buying? THX Ed

    From the way it is "cut" I would think someone mechanically cut it down to make it look like that on the reverse.

    So Post Mint Damage.

    Listen carfully.. Forget it!

    That is not a Mint Error of any kind!

    There is so much garbage on sites like ebay and etsy that people call "mint errors".. It's awful!
    You really need to educate yourself on what true errors are.

    Nice to see that after all the abuse that coin took to get that exotic "error" look the handler was careful to not get any messy fingerprints on that gem by using tongs. Brilliant.

    It's a nickel. Barely.
    When you don't buy it some one else will.
    And then when they go to a coin shop they will be told they have been
    the victim of a fraud.
    Not a strike error. Let me ask you, since it is slightly larger than a nickel,
    how did it fit in the hub/ coining press which would only hold a nickel or something smaller? Not larger. That right there tells you this coin was damaged after minting.
    Split planchet- ahahahahaha.
    If it is thinner than a nickel, it would have to be the same size as a nickel on a thinly rolled planchet, or wrong stock. Since it is larger than a nickel, it is a regular nickel that has been thinned after minting.
    This coin is worth 5 cents. And you would probably have to turn it in to your bank as a mutilated coin to get the 5 cents out of it.
