    The 9 in the date looks doubled without evidence of doubling elsewhere...photo artifact?

    Nice clip.
    They occur with more than normal frequency in 1944 and 1945.

    I see doubling on the first three numbers. And looks to be
    the real deal.

    Hey grip.
    That last one was mine not the OP's
    The OP coin does look like one of the 44 DDO's
    Possible this one ?

    edited to add.... the TRUS in TRUST sure look doubled too.

    I just found a ‘43 clipped planchet steelie inn a batch of wheats that I’ll try to remember to post a pic of later. The Red Book estimated value is about $40.

    That is a nice one to find unattributed, I would need to see the reverse but it looks like it may have a small second clip at K-12 too.

    1944 and 1945 are actually among the easiest dates for which to find clipped cents, along with 1972. That one is certainly large enough that I would have thought someone would have set it aside before now.

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.
