Coin and Paper Money Collecting/1944penny?/1941dime?


I have a 1944 wheat penny that has 1941 dime face the coin is in two pieces is it a magic trick maybe

Hi Corey,

you are right, it is a magician's coin.  I don't know what the trick was, or how it was used, but they are pretty neat to have.  As for a value, like anything else, it's worth whatever the next person is willing to pay for it.  check eBay, maybe that will help.
