Two Halves Don't Make a Whole

Today I sprung for a couple of new tires for my car. The old ones served me well and the old jalopy was ready for some new ones. While they were diddling around with my car, I took a walk. 

I found one of the whole, intact pennies in the street then found one of the halves then later found the other half penny. I know, they're not exactly halves but close enough. And no, I pushed them together and they don't match up. They do make an entire penny pretty much but the images don't match up. Weird, huh?

And earlier this morning I found the darker penny in some rocks along with a little key, like one for luggage. The key caught my eye then I saw the penny. Yay!

I'm only counting the two intact pennies here. The others are just oddities, sort of like the critters found in this book:
