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.
