No "silver ring " (more like a base metal thud)
Failed magnet slide test
I don't know where I got it , I've had it for at least 20 years . I'm thinking it was made years ago for a spender, back when 50 cents was worth something . Any thoughts ?
The coin's year might suggest an attempt at a real counterfeit to pass off to the gullible, since 1936 fell right within the Great Depression years.
Where did you find it? Or how did you get it?
I have no idea where I got it, but I have had it for some time.
I like it.
It looks pretty much like a normal reeded edge. I agree, it looks pretty good.
So what do you suppose it's made out of? Pewter? Lead?
Also, what does it weigh?
Well that would indicate that the OP coin is in the neighborhood of 2.5 grams light, or roughly 25 times the allowed tolerance. Pretty much guarantees the coin is not genuine.
