Is there anyway this is the beginning of a clip? I noticed the clip seems to penetrate the coin but excludes the rims and under the lettering. Your thoughts are appreciated.

Not an incomplete clip, you need to see that arc on both sides of the coin and extended into the rim.

I am thinking it is a strike through wire error, likely a bronze wire, where it would be still retained in the letter of the legend. Hard to tell with these photos.

For reference, this is what an incomplete punched planchet would look like:

The strike thru is prevalent on the bust yet the G and E not there! How does this happen?

If struck through a bronze metal shaving or wire, it could be retained in the legend letters. I see that often with 1968-1969 nickel dollars.

Ty as well! I also wondered how likely a struck through wire would come out in a perfect arc? Any thoughts?

TippyCanoe, the wire could have had the arch already in it from possibly being wrapped around something before ending up between the dies during the strike or just a natural curve in the wire. There is usually no right or wrong answer when it comes to the "bend" in the wire that a coin was struck through, just coincidence often times.
