    Very curious as to how it came apart and/or how it stayed together until it fell apart. Waiting for the error expert's opinions.

    In my opinion.. I would classify it as a Cracked Planchet Error.

    It either somehow split apart after it was struck. Was still held together and finally separated with a little added force.
    Or.. When it was struck it split apart and both pieces just luckily ended up together in a sealed Mint bag where they were found.

    Based on the (lack of) toning on the now-showing parts, I’m inclined to believe it was a cracked Planchet error that later had help becoming two pieces. I’d be curious to inspect the edges closely to see if there was pressure/bending applied or if it was perhaps reverberations that cracked it. I still think it’s really cool, regardless of how it split.

    Definitely not bent.
    Definitely not cut with a laser, knife, or saw.

    @TypeCoin971793 has a large cent that broke into 3 pieces.
    Cool pick up JCro. The tones in the core of the planchet are perty.

    Not a lamination error but a defective planchet that was cracked before finally coming apart. A great error and what a lovely addition to your collection.

    It was a 'cracked planchet', and now it's a 'broken planchet', imo.
    Nice coin, and scarce error like that.

    The Large Cent isn't an error the same, imo.
