Those are really cool, Joe! I like the 1960 the best.
Exactly my thought.. I don't even care if it has a Details grade!
Nice ragged clips you have there!
And that is a nice set.
It's hard for me to imagine anyone spending or accepting one -- certainly a machine wouldn't. But mint bags count as "in the wild", don't they?
NOT a clip! These are wonderful examples of a grossly impure ingot, rolled out to a strip with voids, then normally punched into planchets for striking into coins. A 'clip' is an overlap with another punching (curved) or with the edge of the strip (straight). That wonderful 1960 is also my favorite of your group.
I thought the same.. More like a Fissure.
@JCro57 would you agree to fissure rather than ragged clip?
How about @Fred Weinberg any ideas?
Here is the information on Ragged Fissures
I see that you have good taste because you like the 1960 as well.
Thanks for pointing it out, John. I saw the word "ragged", and I just naturally followed with the word "clip". Agree that a "clip" should be more "uniform" than the examples shown.
On the other hand, I do have a ragged clip wheat penny in my collection. Not as dramatic as the 3 examples though.
