Came across this George V One Cent coin. Is this considered a die clash? I have seen others like this in research. Any assistance on the possible error and grading would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

That coin is from Great Britain.
Would get better results in the United Kingdom Forum.

That's known as progressive indirect die transfer, quite common with these coins.

Commonly called ghosting.
It is a common coin and worth just a few pence.

Grade looks to be low VF by US standards.

Yes to all the above - ghosting was such a problem with the UK pennies at that time, mainly because the depth of obverse bust was too great, thereby drawing material from the reverse. They experimented with various changes in design and eventually switched to a much smaller bust to clear the problem.

..and it is a Penny, not a cent. At the time it was made there were 240 pennies to the pound so in no way could it be a cent of anything.
