That's not how it works.
And the nickel would had to be minted with a 1999 obverse die and a 2000 obverse die (which don't fit). Someone made that 2 headed coin. It didn't come from the mint like that.
There are coins that have 2 heads or 2 tails, but I think in all cases chicanery and unscrupulous mint workers were involved. Except in the case when a coin may have flipped over somehow during the process. Unlikely but possible.
Well, I have a two-tailed Indian Head cent. Seems slightly strange why one would want to make a two-tailed versus two-headed coin in the first place, but I supposed there are reasons people have for doing this. Obvious one is that when you make a two-headed one, you're left with the two tails. In any case, close inspection with a mag glass reveals nothing unusual relative to a normal indian cent, so will send it out.
Strange, I can’t edit the post. Wanted to put ‘1783 Washington double headed cent’.
