Kind of a curiosity question, what is the largest clipped planchet known of any denomination?

And at what point would the clipped planchet stop being considered a Clipped planchet/coin and start to be considered struck scrap?

I have to take some pics of a huge clipped nickel I bought a few years ago which I found again as I've been cleaning/organizing my coins while stuck at home.





Weight is 1.9 grams, my control nickel same date and AU condition weighed 5.0 grams on the dot. So by weight alone I get the coin is 62% underweight from a normally struck nickel. I picked it up because I hardly ever see clips over 50%.

Sorry, should have said cleaning up the desk and area where my coins have accumulated by organizing them! Haven't cleaned a coin since the early 1990s when I used to used baking soda and water to make em shine!
