I recently came across a 1996 Kennedy half dollar. The head side is identical to any other half dollar of the period. The unusual thing is that the reverse side is also a head. The two sides are rotationally aligned. The one difference is that there is no outer lip on the second side. The detail and the material all lead me to think that the coin is authentic. For example the coin has obviously a copper alloy center.  Are there any known errors of this type or are there any known fakes of extremely high quality known to exist?

What you have is a magicians coin. Many tricks use 2 headed coins. It is worth about 5 dollars, because thats what it costs to make them. Sorry
