Based on the images provided, this clip does not appear to be a legitimate US Mint error.

A coin with a clip should show evidence of the Blakesley Effect - a weakness of strike at the rim opposite the clip area. The opposite rim on this coin appears fully-formed without weakness.

Additional images may prove differently, but that's what my eyes see in what has been presented.

Not a clip, the rims aren't dovetailed plus you can see extra metal
along the edge that would not occur with a genuine clip.

I'm on team shed job for this one too, although it would be nice to see an edge view of that "clip".

I agree this is PSD.
(I see no "Smith Effect" on the edges of the rim either as they disappear into the cut edge.)

Other than looking at the edge, the coin is missing all of the three things one would normally give a quick check for. There appears to be no distortion of the lettering near the clip, no Blakesley Effect and no Smith Effect. Many large clips show little or no Blakesley, but having none of those three I strongly lean toward a faked clip. As a side note, most larger straight clips don't seem to end up quite that straight as the metal deforms a bit differently across the clip as it crosses areas with devices and fields.

I agree, this appears to be PMD.

I don't see any 'smith' or blakesley effects on this one.

that and the fact that when the planchet is struck, the metal will expand into the empty area that is not contained by the collar.

All the tells of a coin that was sheered. As stated above, metal from the cut still above the surface of the coin, would have been pressed level with surface. Devises struck up fully at the cut, they should have trailed off into the cut. To straight, metal would have [smooshed] into the cut.

Here are some photos that are a little closer to give a final verdict if this is a shed job or a real clipped. Will it get sentenced back into circulation? Will it get put in a flip and sent off to get a slab? I am guessing the first one..... we'll see.... I am no expert in these errors.

Really good edge pics @cap. Nothing here makes me think it happened at the mint.

This coin show a strait vertical cut. The rolls are trimmed by circular cutters and not vertical. Here attached it is an blade cutter for vertical cut. Sorry the coins was cut after left the mint



Please look at the same pattern of the blade and the side of the coin. The mint has the blades sharp in rotative motions and are diamantes.
