I have a dumb question... what's wrong with this private key?

Created on bitcoinpaperwallet.com Sent $1, then copied to to a text file.

Public: 19c8pHjh8d5R2XkwUq74QuHEDFJcKER1vs
Private: 5JmdXtN7fDwaD8ZH2a1ksEeotDaw6­WKahgCCArLZmCV8RLBAiDW


I tried sweeping the private key in coinbase & paper wallet android app. Neither worked... complaining it's improper format.

The length looks okay. Can anyone explain what's wrong? If you figure out, please keep the $1 as tip. I only ask you please explain to me the problem.

can not even be decoded.  It is not proper base58 encoding of anything.

My bad... figured it out.

This worked 5JmdXtN7fDwaD8ZH2a1ksEeotDaw6WKahgCCArLZmCV8RLBAiDW
Which, strangely looks exactly the same.

It turns out, somehow an invisible (unicode?) character had been introduced after the "Daw6", when I pasted it somewhere that inserted the line break. I managed to find the non-alphanumeric using rege[Suspicious link removed]

Once I removed that character... imported the $1 into coinbase.

strange, it shows up as a "-' lookalike in notepad but is invisible here 5JmdXtN7fDwaD8ZH2a1ksEeotDaw6­WKahgCCArLZmCV8RLBAiDW but looks like 5JmdXtN7fDwaD8ZH2a1ksEeotDaw6-WKahgCCArLZmCV8RLBAiDW in notepad.  and is 53 characters instead of 51 because of that hidden character.  Very strange
glad u figured out Cheesy

Ahhhh..... I've seen that issue loads of times. Mostly when copy/pasting passwords, though.
Why would there even be unicode characters for '' (nothing)?
