Hello, Joshua here. I believe this to be a clipped planchet, hesitant though

    Until you can post pics, here is some good info on clips. This should help you determine if it's a true error, or just someone having fun with a grinder.

    Unquestionably real. Worth a dollar or two.

    Genuine straight clip with the Blaksley effect, worth a couple to a few dollars.

    why does the straight clip look like as thought it is trying to pretend to be a clamshell?

    Interesting cent and thanks @FredWeinberg for that clarification. I was wondering the same thing about the 'split' visible at the clip. Cheers, RickO

    Unlike me to be this late to a clip party but as others have said, it's a genuine end of strip clip.

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.
