    I thought it's illegal to temper with the federal government's property, in this case a coin. Isn't that true in the US as well?

    kvasir,
    It is illegal if your doing it for deseption or gain.
    There is a thread on here that explains it better.

    Isn't that what they are doing? They are selling these as magician coins for a profit, (presumably) made from real coins. Where is this thread?

    No they aren't....they sell it as a "fake" but if you take it and try to spend it YOU will be the one in jail!

    :rolleyes: what a jokester.

    on topic: i think you might have seriously come across a junk law. i dont think you can get incarcerated for a fraud coin so long as its not for deception.

    On cable the mint show how coins were made and tested i also have a two head coin 1992 quarter it's a fake seen how the man made it on a show he did a great job if you look at the inside rim on both sides of cion you can see and one side could have light cirle like a record .

    I liked that article on how they are made. I've got a few of them. A freind of mine has the quarter one but won't sell it to me. Actually I've used my 2 headed Nickel to commit a crime. At work many times we flip for who buys coffee. I usually offer to supply the coin and call heads. Think the coffee police will come get me?
    For real those dumb things are going up in cost. Now a two heaaded nickel goes for about $10. Got mine for $2 and it paid for itself many times over.

    I may be able to provide that---let me check out some copyright issues. Since I now own varietynickels.com it would depend on how it was (C).
