    Strange Half Dollar

    The wife and I were searching a box of halves this evening. I found a 1972D clad half. It looks completely normal including the edge. However, the sound of it hitting other coins drew us to it. It has a low dull sound when hitting the table. Almost as if it is hollow. I can post pics or even upload a video so that you can hear it. Was there a planchette error for this year?
    Thanks for your expertise.

    It's a magician's half. Scotch and soda trick coin. Put it in a sturdy Tupperware container and shake the $&/! Out of it. It will pop open and reveal (most likely) a 20 Mexican centavo or a British one penny on the interior of the reverse. Let us know what you find!

    likely has a rotated die also and will weigh about 10 grams. I run them under HOT water then bounce off the floor-- voila---- now you have 2 coins

    found about 9 of those--- and all sold for $8+ each
