Here is a 1976 Canadian cent with a Incomplete Curved Clip. This form of Clip occurs when a blank is only partially punched out of the strip and the strip drops back or fails to advance far enough to clear the next cycle of the punches and a new blank is punched from the area where there are partially punched out blanks. The result will be a new blank overlapping into the area where the partially punched out blank was located. The clip will show on both sides due to the punching and shearing actions of punch and lower die. Coin courtesy of Colin Cutler.

The bottom photo show a piece of US cent strip with partially punched out planchets. Image and strip courtesy of Al Raddi.

you have posted the 2 partial clips that will make SPP-Ottawa go crazy, a small cent and a nickel dollar.

thanks for the cool pics and info in both threads.

That is really cool! Thanks for the visual. I recently found a 1965 incomplete clip but it's not cut through quite as deeply as your example.

Pretty darn cool!!

I assume if you apply pressure, it would easily break apart?

Very lucky it's still together & it did not break after leaving the mint!

AWESOME PENNY!

I really have no idea of value. This is one of the deepest cut I've ever seen. I was almost afraid it would fall apart but then we'd have one neat coin anyway. I have thousands of images that I need to process. Hope to put more here.

Would it be more valuable as two coins - an elliptical clip and a huge crescent clip? A mated pair? It's almost there! (Joking of course.)

Nice coin and pics!

Great photos Ken, I have a few examples:

This one is cool, a clipped cent with an incomplete clip



I find the larger crescent incomplete clips to be fairly easy to find, but the smaller ones like this, whereby we see a lot of in fully clipped coins, are scarcer.

Roger,
Nice clips! The 1963 is a Hanging 3 too. I'm sure that makes it worth a lot more! Ha! LOL
