Nice straight clip.
It's a wonder that it stayed in circulation long enough to get that worn.

@JimmyD I know, it's crazy to think that it managed to stay out of a collectors hands for so long. But it just serves as further proof to me that the old errors are still out there to be found!

What's a Blaksley Effect?

The Blakesley Effect is when theres no pressure applied opposite of the clip causing a flat spot in the rim (the weak rim area opposite of the clip).

Edit: Named after Mr. Blakesley, an American numismatist who first described it. And also, it doesn't always occur on clipped planchets but yours clearly shows it.

To sum it up: It's rim weakness directly opposite from the actual clip on the coin

@Ghawk so what does that mean for this coin? How do you suppose it could have the blakesly effect and be a clipped planchet and how does it only appear on some? This is something worth learning for sure. If you have any reference material bookmarked I would love to read up on it. For now off to google to research it for myself lol

When the blank is turned into a planchet, it goes through what is called the upsetting mill. This is basically a pair of rollers that push the edge of the blank in an creates the rim. So if there is a clip, the rollers can't apply pressure right, and the opposite side of the coin is "weak" as you see here. It helps confirm this is a real clip and not after it left the mint.

Yorkish, use the search box found at the top left of every CCF page. There is a wealth of info therein!

Everyone calls these straight clips, but they aren't clipped on the edge. That is the edge of the stock material. So I feel it is OK to call this an incomplete planchet.
