Straight clipped planchet?

Post by Zach U » Sun Feb 21, 2021 11:22 pm

Someone at the grocery store had someone pay with this, I noticed it on top of the till and swapped it out with cash of my own. What do you guys think?

I agree
That has been done after it left the mint.
Just a damaged Toonie.

Looks like a legitimate straight clip to me.

This can happen when the sheet being punched out for planchets goes off course and the edge is punched out, leaving a straight edge.

A clip that size should show a Blakesley effect. There is no sign of even the slightest one.

The Blakesley Effect is often absent in the case of large clips. Because the dies impact is concentrated on a much smaller piece of metal, boosting the effecting striking pressure. This increased pressure overcomes the lack of a proto-rim and generates a normal design rim.

I think it's post-mint that something sliced it. I see no indication of anything disfiguring any part of the T & H in Elizabeth or the S in dollars. I think that there would be a bulge there with nothing holding back the metal from flowing.

I don't even think that it is PMD.

The clipped part has been ground to give a smooth finish. Mint damage would be a sharp break.
