Coins and Paper Money

Is a nickel with 1991 P on one side and 1990 P on the other a mis-strike or is it a fake?

Simply put -- it is a fake.

You have what's known as a "Magician's Coin".

This is NOT something that was done at the Mint.

This was made by altering two normal coins and gluing the altered pieces back together. Use a magnifier to check just inside the rim on one side of the coin -- you are looking for the seam where the two pieces were joined -- it could be on either side of the coin.

This type of novelty item sells regularly on for a couple dollars.

the rate of inflation went down slightly. Novanet: goods and services were cheaper in 1991 than in 1990.
