FRAUD-Perfect fifty cent (on
top) and debased coin (below)
look almost identical from top,
except for a slight ridge inside
the rim of the fraudulent half-
dollar.

FRAUD REVEALED - When
looked at from a side view the
debasement becomes apparent
as the thin overlays of silver are
pulled aside to show where the
coin was reamed or separated
and resoldered.

Fraudulent Halfs-DoCllar
Starts Campus, Mystery

i

By HARRY LUNN
A debased fifty cent piece has
mysteriously turned up on cam-
pus to plague local police and
the Detroit Branch of the U. S.
Secret Service who as yet have
no idea of where it originally
came from or who debased it.
The coin was given to The Daily
by a student who had it passed
to her as change in a local store
several weeks ago. Unwittingly
she tried to purchase something
with the coin at another store and
discovered the fraud.
Somehow metal has been re-
moved around the half-dollar's
rim in a cut extending an eighth
of an inch into the coin, but leav-
ing the face and back unmarred.
* * *
IT IS THOUGHT that either
the metal was merely reamed out
or else the debaser sawed it into
three parts so that its face and
back remained unmarred, but
were separated. In this way ,he
could remove a substantial piece

solder all three parts together
again.
Local bankers who have not
as yet seen such a coin specu-
lated that the whole incident
was a prank as they thought no
one would go to this considerable
trouble for the amount involved.

I

An Ann Arbor Bank representa-
tive said counterfeit money pass-
ing through the bank amounted
to only $20 or $30 a year, and
this money was chiefly in fake $10
bills. "Coins such as this are a
great rarity," he remarked.
MEANWHILE, another half-
dollar with a lead filled hole in it
turned up on campus.
Both local police and the Re-
tail Merchants Association had
heard nothing of such coins,
although the police were much
interested in seeing the debased
half-dollar. In Detroit, agents
of the U.S. Secret Service were
also much concerned about the
coin and putting a stop to such
practices.
Both agencies will be investi-
gating the matter, but mystery
still shrouds the debased silver
disk with no one knowing where
it came from.
