Please compare the orientation of your coin's sides with those on coins from your pocket change. ALL American coins are struck so that the front and back sides are oriented 180 degrees opposite to each other.If your coin has the front and back sides pointing the same direction, that's likely to be a rotated die error which can be worth a significant premium. But even so, there are fakes that have been made by cutting a coin apart and re-orienting the sides, so you'd need to have it authenticated in person by an expert.

A number of Delaware coins were minted with a so-called rotated die reverse. A die was incorrectly aligned in a press so some coins were minted with the back and front sides pointing the same direction (like Canadian coins) instead of 180 degrees off as is the standard for U.S. coins. This is considered to be a significant error and can retail for $50 or so.

If it has the tails image on both sides, how do you know its date is 1921? In any case if both sides are the same it's a prank coin made by joining halves of 2 genuine coins and has no numismatic value. The good news is that its silver content might be worth $13-$15. BTW, coins are minted or struck rather than "stamped"

It's a novelty item called a magician's coin made by cutting apart two genuine coins and swapping sides. They sell for a few bucks in hobby and novelty shops but are considered to be altered/damaged coins with no collector interest.

The value will be five cents. Older coins were often struck with one side first, then the other - meaning that the face and reverse sides were not aligned. Modern processes are able to strike both sides simultaneously - meaning the images on both sides of the coin are perpendicular.

Yes. Nearly all U.S. coins are minted with the front and back sides oriented 180° apart. Just check your pocket change.
