  1. As a coin error collector for 50 years and author of the Error & Variety
    column in Canadian Coin News, I have owned and seen a number of split
    planchets. Usually, the split is the result of impurities inside the strip
    of metal from which the blanks are punched out. When the blank is struck
    between dies in the minting press under 200-plus tons of pressure. The
    impurity will heat up as a result of the pressure, and when the dies
    retract, the impurity expands, forcing the metal apart. Yours is excessive
    splitting, which is great. To alleviate any doubt about whether the coin
    was split during production or if it was partially cut in half after it
    left the Mint, look for any impurities (i.e. dried grease, a crushed piece
    of cleaning rag) inside the split. If you find evidence of any impurity,
    that is great. Whatever you do, do NOT clean the impurity.

  2. Possible but highly unlikely, if you are willing to grade it you will get
    an experts opinion. A retained split of this caliber has not been seen at
    auction.

  3. got all my error coins from my grandfather who collected them as a hobby
    when he was younger

  4. The video is very blurry but all evidence points to damage, no extra value.
