Mostly all those Magician coins are made from real coins.
I don't think the person at the cashier has time to look at both sides of a coin before receiving it or giving them back as change.. It's just a novelty two headed quarter. Neat find.
Just thinking out loud: Not that it would/could happen......Could a magicians coin be considered counterfeit and be legally seized by the Gov't, just like currency?
Mamy old threads about this.
No deception that it is not a quarter worth 25 cents or changed at a bank for 25 cents.
Now if they tried to deceive someone that it was a half dollar ..
...or of a customer handed that magicians quarter or half to a teller at a bank, it fell, opened and broke apart..... The teller could seized it?
It is a damaged quarter
I know it damaged. My question: Can the teller legally seize the coin and take it out of circulation?
The question of legality with altered coins hinges on whether the alteration was done with intent to defraud. Altering two quarters and then passing it as one quarter doesn't seem to me like you are trying to defraud them. Trying to sell it as a rare error, or using it to try to increase your odds gambling would be, and in such a case subject to seizure.
