I know you are not the author but posting misinformation like that diminishes this site's credibility.
This site is about the best online source for Canadian numismatic info, I hope you keep it that way.

Re: 1858 clipped large penny

It's not a clip and it's not a penny.
Someone has cut a piece off of this cent.

Re: nickel

It's been damaged and the copper underlayer is showing through.
On the face even that layer has been removed and the bare steel is showing.
