Hi folks, I am looking for a split coin, preferably half dollar, and a shell. I would like to be able to still seperate the split coin when it is in the shell. Does anyone know if there is a coin set like this available to purchase anywhere. There are so many of you with knowledge of coin skullduggery, I’m hoping someone might know of one. 🤞

Probably a custom order, but a split may just fit in an expanded shell.

I have a split Kennedy and a tail shell that matches well. Yes, the split works in the shell, but ...

because of the thickness of the split coins the edge of the shell shows noticeably from the head side,
which may be why they don't normally combine the two.

I think Johnny Wong's Perfect Power 3 will do that. I owned it many years ago, but the memory is a little dusty - I do think I'm right, though.

I've owned a number of the Wong (and Wong-type) sets over the years, and PP3 was probably my favorite.

Yes, Chessmann is correct.

Johnny makes the set and I use to own it also. However, you cannot ux-xxxt it once it is nxxxxd.... unless you perform a very suspicious move to remove it with a mxxxxxxc ring.

or You can just separately buy a sxxxt coin and an expxxxxx shxxx. However, it will not have the look and feel of a sxn mxxn fit.

PM me if you want more details so there is no exposure.

Craig Petty's Nightshade coin set was made that way. It included (among other things) a split half, a split EP, and a shell (I think EP).
