Coin and Paper Money Collecting/1988p 2 head copper nickel


I inquired a couple of days ago about this, why copper and without Hollow sound.
answer was "I don't know. boredom maybe". That doesn't help me at all.
let me try this once more but with a different question: is it possible for an employee at the mint to monkey with the process and create this?

Hello Dave,

Please note that I am not the person who replied to your last question - I would never have given such a reply.

Mint employees by design do not have opportunities to "monkey" with the process. They employee strict quality control measures and all of the machines, processes and inventory is closely monitored.

If you can send me some pictures of your coin I think I can identify what you have.
