    The Scotch and Soda magic trick prop is a pair of coins (such as half dollars) that have been machined so that the obverse of one of the coins and the reverse of the the other join together in a way that leaves a hollow area that can hold another, smaller-diameter, thinner coin inside (such as a centavo). For this prop, the visible reeded edge is uniform (the entire reeded edge is from one side or the other of the two coins used to make the trick). OP's coin has an edge with a "seam" and so it appears to be a half dollar obverse and One Penny reverse that have been split off of their as-minted origins and then joined.

    It is a novelty creation, possibly a magic trick prop, but it is not a Scotch and Soda prop. It will not open.
    YUP--- you are correct...........................just looked at the rim--- I now will proceed to place the dunce cap on

    A magician's coin trick called "Copper-Silver". It is a very convincing illusion that requires a bit of slight of hand to accomplish.
