Hi, I was wondering if anyone could please tell me if the clipped edge of a clipped planchet would be very smooth or if it would be a little sharp? Also would it have any markings that would indicate whether it as a true clipped planchet?
Thanks!

What denomination coin is it ? If the rim looks funny opposite the clip it is most likely real.
Is the clip straight or curved ?
Some pictures would be a help,so someone could tell you for sure.

Thanks people! I read an interesting article within the links about 'double straight edged clips' and wonder if that is what I have.
The best I could do as a picture was to scan the coin, I simply can't get a photo at this time, they're not the greatest but will give you an idea.

Looks genuine to me,has the Blakesly Effect opposite the clip & would be quite rare I would think.

What you have is a straight edge clip. There is only one clip (not a double). You can see the Blakesley effect like apple says.

I can see two clips right next to each other. When looking at the reverse picture there is a small clip right next to the big one.
Rest in Peace

I see the obvious clip, and a smaller one at 006.

Only problem is that makes no sense, since straight clips are the end of the bar being punched out.

The double clipped ones I have seen are usually from the corner of the sheet and the clips are around 90 degrees apart.

There's this niggling background thought that says 50c, as the size and angle of the clip seems consistent, but can't think of any way for a 10c planchet to be struck from a 50...

If it were a sheet of planchet metal for 50c it would be thicker than the 10c. I can see an ever so slight curve but it is hard to tell.

Is it curved Ingine?

Both clips look straight to me.

Yes there are two 'clips', but I too fail to understand how it could be a true straight double clip for the same reasons stated by biggfredd & enworb.
And yes I believe they are both straight 'clips', although I have lost my eye piece and am judging by eye.
FNQ - it fits perfectly except as you said the thickness...hmm
