Nice clipped planchet. It would be my understanding that the opposing dents in the middle of the clip and opposite rim would be from a foreign object chain strike. But I am open to other explanations of course.

The flattening on the other side of the rim is Blakesley effect

(can we have an auto-link for Blakesley effect?)

Maybe wrong, but thinking the raised dents or material on reverse occurred after strike. Maybe jammed up a vending machine at some time.

Don't see chain strikes very often. http://www.error-ref.com/chain-strikes/

Quote:
Chain strikes are sometimes mistaken for straight and curved clips. Several diagnostics serve to distinguish the two errors:
1.A chain strike shows a distinct contact facet while a clip doesn't.
2.Design elements bordering a chain strike show no metal flow. Design elements bordering a clip will show metal flow.
3.A coin with a chain strike will weigh the same as a normal coin. A coin with a clip will be underweight.

Thanks, Doug.

I was guessing on the chain strike based on Mike Diamond's comments on my double struck Oregon quarter. You can read his comment in that thread and see if I am way off or on track.
