I love clipped planchets, but I am unsure of this one being legitimate. The rim seems unaffected, as if the edge was ground off. Can we get straight on photos front and back?

What should I be looking for on the rim?

With clipped planchets, the rim isn't fully struck up near the missing metal. Your coin looks like the rim was fully struck up, and it was shaved away post mint. Compare your coin to genuine clipped planchets online.

Another thing that should be visible is the Blakesley effect. This is when the opposite side of the clip has a weak strike. Although your coin is worn, there is no sign of the Blakesley effect.

Use the search box,upper left of page. Search clipped planchet or incomplete planchet.
