    Appears to be a vintage magician's coin.

    It has little to no numismatic value in the traditional sense, as both coins were destroyed in the making of it. It does, however, probably have some (modest) value as a curiosity and collectible.

    And a tiny bit of silver value, though probably not full dime weight.

    Someone went to the trouble of taking a Wheat Cent and grinding down the Obverse. Then they did the same to the Silver Mercury Dime. They also had to cut down the edge of the Cent to the same diameter of the Dime in order to attach both coins together.

    I hope you understand that there is no way this would occur at the US Mint. It's not any kind of known Mint Error. And since such alteration is considered damage it's really not an item with a premium of any kind.

    you guys ae so edited and don't know what you are talking about, I posted on here a second tier 3 oz engelhard on here and everyone said worth 3 oz scrap 70$ at the time, I knew better because of other research sold on ebay for 850, this coin is a mint error not some magician's coin or some altered coin, stop lying to people to rip them off, you should be ashamed, this forum is a joke

    You seem to have trouble with reading comprehension. From that very thread:
    Just putting this up for anyone else who checks your posting history before wasting time trying to answer any further "questions" you might "ask".

    What's the side view look like?
    Readed edge?
    Stick to a magnet?
    Size (diameter and weight)
    Interesting piece BUT you really gotta ask yourself how would that happen at the mint?

    As others have pointed out, not a mint error.

    Do you work for the Department of Redundancy Department?

    You are right. Most sensible thing for you to do would be to not come back to this terrible place.

    Please explain how this can happen in the minting process. If you don't like the free and correct answer here, spend your money and send it to PCGS for authentication!

    It's obvious..

    A magical elf :troll: snuck into the US Mint one night. He installed 2 reverse dies. Then he took a silver planchet and a copper planchet and struck the planchets. Magic came into play at that moment when the silver and copper fused together in a way where they would never separate! :woot:

    That's cool. They also show the edge of two previously grounded down coins. Otherwise it's weight and thickness would be that of two distinct planchets.
    And somehow the cent planchet got RAMMED into a dime's Reeded Collar Die (which neither show a reeded edge), or the opposite with the Dime NOT expanding to a cent's Collar Die.

    Trying to rip you off?

    Did anyone try to buy it from you?

    Probably not, since everyone here knows what that is.

    And since you are the expert, why ask questions?

    If you are so sure, submit it to PCGS or NGC--

    After you waste you money, post a good by and go elsewhere.

    Folks here are just trying to help you.

    PS: Your attitude stinks.
