Looking up, learning about, and hopes of treasure. Helps to fill my down time, and honestly peaked my interest.
    Today I found a double headed quarter, with no date, and both D and P mint marks. Did some digging and even after learning that quarters like mine are not all that rare, my curious self needs to know more about double sided coins.
    I know that Living in Denver I’m naturally drawn to coins from other mints, is it standard for double sided coins to have different mint marks? If there’s no date, how does the government know its circulation time and businesses know it’s legit currency. Also, I’ve read that some/most double sided coins are fakes, has there never been an actual doubled coin minted and sent out ito circulation?

    If I worked there I'd keep my eyes peeled for any 1940's cars. That would be great if someone worked at a pick and pull and found a 1943 cent worth hundreds of thousands. Never mind me, just day dreaming here! laughhard.gif

    That is correct. They are all fakes.

    Not doubled, the correct word is double headed.

    Yes only one.. a double headed nickel..

    It's a magician's coin. You might be able to see where it was put together on the edge of the coin. Nice find.

    Correct!
    Depending on which coin I have each day I will tell the other person.."Heads I win, tails you lose!".. Think about that one! ;)

    Assuming it was real, it would be impossible to have a mint mark from Philadelphia, and a mint mark from Denver.
    The good news is a magician's coin has a value of X # of dollars. (5-10?)

    So therefore it can't be real ;)
