tpgs call it a clip, correct numismatic term is incomplete planchet
Scientific or the OCD term is incomplete planchet. JMO.
I think TPG's use what they are paid to use.
WAS JUST AGREEING WITH PADDY, HE STARTED IT!!!
Clip is a much easier word to print than incomplete, and it also explains the error.
The correct term is an incomplete planchet. As to the type of the incomplete planchet, it’s a curved clip.
The 'correct' term, in use for 100+ years is Clipped Planchet.
"Correct" in the sense of it's been used for so long that even
new collectors know what a coin will look like.
We can all agree that incomplete planchet is more accurate,
but clipped planchet is more descriptive and an easier term to use.
We've had this discussion for over 50+ years, and 99.5% of
collectors and dealers use the term 'Clipped', like it or not, when
writing, texting, or talking about them..
Yours is an incomplete planchet. The type of clip is called a straight clip, which is more than likely from the side, not the end.
that is exactly why it is an incomplete planchet, nothing was "clipped" it is due tio an overlap in stamping original planchets, one was over another or one as in your case came at end of strip, and woops, incomplete planchet, let er rip anyways@@!!
ends are usually ragged
Hence, not the end but (as I stated).
I CORRECTED MYSELF
WAS JUST GOING BY PADDY, I AGREED WITH HIM SO GUESS WE ARE BOTH WRONG, BUT RIGHT>> LOL
