Going to try and start posting some of the clips with nice Smith Effect when I get them. This is about as obvious as it gets with the clip tapering to the rim on all four points.

Nice one and a really nice example of the Smith Effect.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups.
We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

But no Blakesley Effect.
I have doubts about the clip.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

If a duck doesn't quack does that make you doubt it's a duck? There is no question this is a legit clip. And part of the new terminology "Smith Effect" is to add another substantial way to verify clips since many do not exhibit the Blakesley Effect.

Thanks for the boost of my insight. Also a good example that my Smith effect works well in tandem with the Blakesley effect.

Sometimes seen as weaken rim areas, sometimes only affecting one edge of the coin. (During the upset process the clipped planchet will rise and affect just one edge of the planchet. But on this coin I'm seeing on this coin, the weakening the rim on both sides of the coin. Note how the inside edge of the rim is weakened on the the affected area.






CoopHome: What is the Blakesley affect on a Straight and Curved Clips on coins? the weaker edge affect at 180 degrees across the coins rim direction.
