I recently inherited a small coin collection from my grandfather when he passed away. I have some very nice coins but one is real interesting. it's a 1950 something penny. but the right half of the penny is missing. it has no scratch or cut marks or saw marks on it anyway. it was done in the minting process somehow. because the edges are smooth and flat and rounded just like the rest of the coin is. it was done intentionally by someone I don't think. can someone please tell me if it's worth anything. my grandfather had a lot of coin that are real valuable that I now have an I was wondering about this one in particular.

you need to stop holding your coins like that.. FINGERPRINTS! the natural enemy of coins. they become permanent after a time and devalue the coin.

@mb, yes holding your coins by their edges is a good idea. Any chance of your re-posting pics but with the details in focus? It is pretty tough to tell much without sharp detail. Thx.

Would love to see a full photo of the reverse. Looking for the Blakesley Effect.

Blakesley Effect. I didn't know what it was so I looked it up. Sharing for anyone in my shoes.

Search ebay SOLD auctions for "clipped planchet cent" (or "penny") and see if you can find one like yours. This is an easy way to price coins.

It could be a straight clip cent, but clear sharp pictures of the obverse and reverse is required.

Sage advice not to hold your coin that way but only at the edge.

It may be a pincer type post Mint coin clip.
Need much sharper focus pictures to tell for sure.
There is no Blakesley Effect, which should be apparent for a blanking clip of this size.
