    Finding one of the late WW2 porcelain coins has been a personal goal of mine for several years, as I am interested in coins of nonstandard shapes and materials. It took me quite a while to come across one. This one is split through, so I don't dare take it out of the packaging to get a better photo. At least that made it cheap, though. $2. 1 sen 1945 clay.jpeg

    That crack is just absolutely painful to look at.

    There are materials available to repair porcelain, so perhaps you should consider if it could be repaired.

    Eh, I'll buy a better one some day. There's enough missing material on the reverse that even if I repair the crack it won't look much better. This one is more of a
    placeholder, but I'm still happy to have it.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I'll have to dig mine out and post it. Honestly, I see no problem gluing it together to stabilize it. Plus you only have $2 invested

    Here's a German porcelain notgeld medal with an "edge ding"

    See, this is what I hate... :) I read this and go on e-bay and order a set of two German ones...

    I have to admit I think it's kind of cool broken. I've seen some mildly damaged ones (chips etc), but nothing that drastic and still in an intact packaging.
