It's "real," but it isn't a Mint-manufactured coin. This is a magician's coin made from two legal-tender coins after they were issued for circulation.

No. It's manufactured for magicians.

Take it to a reputable coin dealer and he can verify it for you. Some easy tricks to do is to see if it sticks to a magnet, if it does, it is a fake.

Is there any reord of a buffalo dime with a wheat penny back struck in silver date 1923?

There was never a "buffalo dime", only a buffalo nickel. Regardless of what denomination is on the non-penny side, a "coin" like that would be almost impossible to produce. You have a novelty item made by cutting apart two real coins, swapping sides, and joining them using jeweler's or machinist's techniques. It's the same way all of those "rare, extremely valuable, major error" (NOT!!!) two-headed coins are made.
