    I've had an offer to purchase my coin but have no idea what it's value is. The proposed buyer did not give a price, just an offer to buy it if I wanted to sell it. Any ideas?

    Is that a seam on the inside reverse rim? The obverse looks bulged out.
    Someone just did a post with a Kennedy Half two piece coin.

    That does look like another seem.

    @Mountain Man - Weigh and compare your coin to a normal copper cent (3.1 grams). Drop the coin on your counter several times and see if it sounds funny. Finally, I had to put my Kennedy "Magician Coin" in a glass jar, screwed on the lid, and shake it hard and the coin separated.

    No seam, it weighs correctly and the question was, "What do you think the value is?"

    There is a seam on the reverse though. You can clearly see it in your picture.

    You are absolutely correct and I apologize. I was looking at the edge of the coin, not near the edge and upon taking a better photo, it is obvious it has been doctored. Thank you for saving me from looking bad to a buyer. I have now labeled it a novelty coin and fake and let the prospective interested party know that it turned out to be a fake. I have never sold any of my collection and hope I would never make this mistake again if I do.
    My eye sight just isn't what it used to be and I'm thankful my friends at CT are here to keep me honest and educated.
