One more week until bat season is done, but I managed to wrangle a weekend off and making a quick visit home. Quite the pile of coins on my desk right now, so will try and get a few of them done up tonight.

Ragged clips are a favorite of mine and this one came up on ebay at auction. I paid $17.48 for it including shipping, which is pretty much what I would value it at so not a bargain but not overpaying either.

Glad to have you back in house and posting some of your gems. I probably won't comment on all of them, but you can be sure that I'll be looking at them all. This one is a great way to start the group!

Excellent find.
Great images showing the depth of detail involved with these.
(ps. Just the fact it made into your collection added to its value.)

Thinking this might be considered a fissure rather than a clip?

Either way, nice error!

Extremely nice planchet error for sure TB! I will have to agree with Adam E in that this is technically either a ragged fissure or ragged notch even though it is still in the "ragged" family. Ragged clips originate from the ends of the sheet metal from which planchets are punched. The cool error you have most likely came from somewhere other than the end of the sheet of metal from which the planchets were punched and was caused by incoherent metal that was affected by the torsional forces applied which basically tore apart the sheet of metal as it was stretched prior to blanking. Sorry to go into that explanation but hopefully someone may read this and research it. No doubt a nice find TB!

Always looking for educational comments, thanks! I'm not an error expert and just try my best to guess correctly when I post and happy to change things when shown to be something else.

This looks more like a cracked planchet error.

The way it's lipped makes it look like you could use it to open a beer bottle. Have you tried?

Wow! Another fantastic error cent. I think your collection is about the same size at the one at the Smithsonian by now.
