Putting some error coins in slips and figured I'd post this one as kinda neat. Weight is 2.4g.

I've had it for a while and honestly don't remember where I got it. But I think it was in a lot of a dozen or so 1915-S coins I bought about a year ago.

That sounds like fun. You must have been having fun going through the lot of 1915 S Wheat cents. It's pretty cool that you found it in the lot you bought. :-)

I sent Mike Diamond an email and here is his answer.

Hi Richard.
It looks like an authentic tapered planchet error. I'm not sure if there's a straight clip or if the fragile thin edge was simply damaged. I don't know what caused the pits.

Always nice to get a review from Mike. Thanks for sending that along and posting his response as I like my coins to have accurate labels and they don't get more accurate than that. In hand it really does look like a straight clip, especially edge-on, so for now I'm keeping that on the label. I agree it would be hard to be sure from the pics I posted.
