    Saw this on eBay recently, and saw quite a few bidders on this obvious (to me) fake.

    For fun, what is the giveaway?

    The very obvious seam near the rim on the first image.

    No fooling y'all. That is it - the second is the "host" coin that was milled with the first set into it and the seam is too obvious.

    An obvious "magician's coin".
