*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I found this 2000 D Massachusetts coin in pocket change. From all of my research I think this mint error is a clipped planchet. Is this correct?

No, not a clipped planchet.

Can you post a pic of the other side? That will help a lot.

maybe show both sides, and, is it bent outward? Is there any design on the other side of that area?

just my curiosity and others may want to know, I'll have no answers to what caused it..

to the farm!

Yea, need bot sides to see if anything is imprinted on that area. I suspect it is PMD, not done at the mint, but it could be an actual stamping error. I see reeding on the edge, that indicates the coin was struck COMPLETELY within the collar and chamber, only way that reeding happens. The coin could have failed to be ejected and encroached into the chamber to be struck a second time, BUT it would have some impression of a normal detail on the reverse, none is seen on this pix for the obverse. I am thinking it is a garage job by our unnameable garage Imp

But the coin may have been double struck with an indent because it was slow getting out of the chamber? Seeing the other side may reveal more information?

I'm hoping for a real error coin. But we need to see the other side.

@gglassn, first welcome to CCF. Second, yes I'm suspicious that your coin is just damaged, but seeing both sides will help with the determination. Please post a pic of the other side when you can. Thx.

Sorry to be so demanding, but if you lay the coin face down and come straight at it, that would be awesome. Right now the most interesting part of the coin is out of focus.

The coin looks alter without any thing showing on the obverse. Perhaps squeezed in a vise with a washer and a vise. Altered one side circular, the other side straight. PSD the coin was fully struck, then later altered. Probably have to take that one back to the bank to deal with.

I agree with @coop (and @crazyb0, who called it first). When I blow up the area of interest on the obv, it looks like there might be marks from the diamond plate of the vice.

Thank you all for your responses. Would it be worthwhile for me to take the coin to a coin dealer so that the coin can be viewed in person, or have the coin graded through one of the coin grading services?

Well, we are saying that your coin is just damaged, but getting a second opinion from your LCS (assuming they are knowledgeable in the area of mint errors) could be helpful. I wouldn't be sending this in to a TPG unless you are sure that it isn't just damage.
