    Howdy migumart - welcome to the Forum !!

    A coin with 2 heads or 2 tails is very likely a novelty coin. If you examine it under magnification you can probably see where this was done - a seam between the two halves. It will usually be right at the inside edge of the rim.

    But - genuine examples of this type of error do exist. They are extremely rare however. There are only a handful - 5 or 6 - that have ever been authenticated. These genuine examples are quite valuable.
