I have this quarter that appears to be a clipped planchet. I looked it up and found similarities, in the one part is smooth at the top, and the copper part us where it looks like it broke off.
It said there should be a lighter or faint looking letters above the clip, with it gas in the word "LI" on the obverse.
It should have slightly rolled into the clip?
I'm thinking this is a true error? Any thoughts?

@miss, the pattern of metal deformation makes me think these are all rim bruises rather than a clip. Let's see what the others think.

I agree with PMD
It is too ragged to be a straight clip and the "L" should run to the edge.

Note the reed lines pushed inwards on the altered areas. The coin was normal when struck, but the reeds are squeezed into outer rim area during the strike of the coin. Thus the outer rim edges were normal, but the coin was alter/damaged before you received it. The reed lines tell the whole story.


If the edge is taller, the reeds will still show:

I agree, not a clipped planchet, just post mint damage.
