    Why would anyone in there right mind do this to a coin? I know it's a war nickel because of the mint mark and the back looks decent for one that old. But the obverse is truly ccrewd up. Why do people do this? I found it in a roll of nickels. The picture looks better than it really is

    The possibilities are endless but it doesn't make sense, does it?

    It's difficult to tell from your photos, but it is possible that you have the reverse half of a split Jefferson nickel. Can you shoot and post better closeups? Also, it would help if you can shoot from an angle which will disclose how much the rim extends above the side of the coin that normally has Jefferson's bust on it.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    I also think it could be a split planchet.
