Trust me, it's a fake. All 1983 dies should have been removed and destroyed before any 1984 dies were delivered. The machinery is designed so that the heads and tails dies will only only fit on opposite sides. If you examine your coin with an 8x or 10x magnifier you should find the seam where parts of two coins were joined. These magicians coins are available for about $5 in novelty shops and several places on the internet.

It's worth the same as all other two-headed coins. It's privately made and has no value to a coin collector, but sells for a couple of bucks in a novelty shop where it's available as a magician's trick coin.

What are the 2 coins if you have 2 US coins that total 55 cents and one of them is not a nickel?

The answer is a nickel and a 50 cent piece (half dollar). The question states that *one* of them is not a nickel, but the other coin may be a nickel. In fact, this is the only answer. One is a half dollar and the other is the nickel. This way, one is not the nickel, the other is the nickel.

There are two different Jefferson nickels dated 1942. One is made from 35% silver with a large "P" or "S" mintmark on the reverse over Monticello. This is a War Nickel that's worth about $1.00 in circulated condition. The other is a common copper-nickel coin that in circulated condition is really only worth face value.
