So, I was looking at a LMC to possibly purchase, and being new to errors and varieties I have a question. The coin in question, obviously by the title is off center and the planchet was straight clipped. Should this still show the Blakesley effect?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

All depends where the clip is located compared to the off center strike - Pictures would be a great help.

I just wasnt too sure because of it not being round if it should still show or not. I dont see one here, although the clip isn't very big. I'm not sure a clip that size would show too much Blakesley anyway.

An off set, clash, and a clip all on the same planchet - what are the odds? The clip looks a bit strange to me, maybe because I've never seen one on an off set strike before and that's how they look.

Haha yeah, I agree. But I'm new to a lot of these errors so I'm not totally sure if it looks right or not. The seller is a high rated seller so I suppose I trust him or her. But even if they arent trying to get over on someone doesn't mean that they didnt just take someone elses word for it and not know themselves. I think I'm going to throw a bid on it. I agree it is quite a nice coin with the 3 different errors on it. I like the trifecta!!

Do you happen to know the weight?

I don't think it's a clipped planchet. This looks more like an off center cent that was part of a Chain Strike. It was pressed against another planchet in the striking chamber. When the planchets were flattened by the strike pressure, the metal flow formed a straight edge between the two. Somewhere is a second coin that would fit next to this one exactly.

Very interesting. Unfortunately, I do not know the weight, but I'm going to send a message to the seller and ask. I'm going to have to research chain strike.
Ok, one thing I dont quite understand about the striking process is how the striking chamber and or the collar works. From my understanding the planchet will sit down in the collar in the striking chamber. And the collar is what keeps the metal from flowing too far outward, and keeps the coin round. So, when a planchet is struck off center how does the planchet become elongated if its in the collar? Is there a diagram or something someone can refer me to so I can visualize this process a little bit. As

Is the weight normal? Is the edge plated on the area in question? (I see split plating on the face area)

I messaged the seller yesterday about the weight, but have yet to receive a reply. And dont know about the plating on the clipped portion. Depending on how much it goes up in auction I may try to secure it, so I can study it in hand. There is still a few days left on it. And I dont want to pay too much for it. I already placed a starting bid yesterday. So we'll see. Thank you all for your replies.
