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.
Interesting coin, Joe. A penny cracker... lol
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.
Just 2 pieces
Not bent or cut.
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.
Maybe the famous James Bond cent that Jaws bit in half. LOL Nice coin, great find.
You are the most exciting guy. You should take your show on the road Buffalo
Damn that is cool. Magic
Think i heard this this before @TypeCoin971793

Lol. Now that makes perfect cents
