I have had this coin for almost 40 years, and always believed it to be a possible incomplete clip. A couple of years ago I saw an article in Canadian Coin News by an error expert describing the same type of markings. He described the process as a sort of "cookie cutter" effect. I am including his pictures that mimic mine. The curved marks on the half dollar are exactly the same size as similar year U.S. half dollars.

What are your thoughts on sending it to a TPG?

Thanks for your reply. I think it's too easy for graders to simply say "damaged", or PMD, without looking and explaining how this happened, as the Canadian error expert did. You will notice the strong similarity in the marks on the Canadian cent to the half dollar.

So is this an example of and incomplete coin blank punching?

The reverse of yours shows nicely how the mark doesn't go through the rim. Thus indicating that it was done before the minting was done.

@TreasHunt What is your reasoning behind that. You should provide some reason to why you think its damage. In my opinion from what Ive seen on incomplete clips this is right.... It looks very good to me. Id say maybe try to sell or grade directly through fred weinberg. But I feel Jon Sullivan will pay you much better, just from personal experience. All in all an awesome error.
