PCGS 5c 189X Liberty Nickel Split Before Strike MS62

PCGS 189X liberty nickel split before strike. The coin has a rough, split side on the obverse, which is the side where the planchet split in half. The coin weighs 2.7 grams, which is almost exactly half the weight of a normal nickel.

Very scarce error type on Liberty nickels. Split after strikes are relatively common, but split before strikes are very scarce.

MS62 lustrous with some gold toning.
