Turns out I have a Napoleon III Secret Compartment Coin as well. Great fun. Was trying to find out how much it's worth. Not much luck yet, but check out

That might help.

I have a couple steel pennies from 1945, and one from 1919, what do you think those are worth?

In that secret compartment they would hide information on microfilm. So literaly you could have a 100 page book in that coin on microfilm.

It's not actually my listing - was trying to find out how much they go for. I've contacted the seller to try and find out what the offer was, but no response as yet.

Is that true? I'm surprised that they had microfilm in 1854. But having checked, it was invented in 1853 by John Dancer, a British optician. It just seems odd to think of spies using microfilm in the time of Napoleon. Of course, it needn't have necessarily been created in 1854, just because it's written on the coin. After all, the coin contains trickery! I had presumed it would store tiny messages on paper, or perhaps would be used for a picture of a loved one (locket stylee). But then I suppose that wouldn't have to be disguised as a coin.

Anyone know any more? I'm finding this item more and more intriguing!
