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 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
Nice coin, and scarce error like that.
The Large Cent isn't an error the same, imo.
You are the most exciting guy. You should take your show on the road Buffalo
