Hey all,

Found this coin in an American cent roll the other day. Noticed the bit of missing metal, could it be a clipped planchet or just PMD?

Pics below!

Looks like it. See the deformation exactly opposite of the clip, at about 11 o'clock? I think that's an indicator of a genuine clip. Don't know why and forgot what it's called, but it's something during the minting process. Anyone let me know if I'm wrong, I'm not that into errors. Nice find!
