    @Fred Weinberg is my go-to guy on this type of thing. Let's see what he thinks. And BTW welcome to CT.

    It's damaged. You can see the metal is pushed up and in.

    I agree with the damage. For multi-clipped coins, where the clips are is important. Using an overlay, a specimen can be checked to see if it fits the overlay. When it doesn't, it generally means that one/both/all of the clips are actually damage.

    Thanks guys. I am new to this whole thing and it has a crack that I can't seem to take a picture of. Are the pics below showing in the thumbnail?

    Where are the clips supposed to be?

    Have a look at this site and check out the offset in the picture of the strip with the punched out planchets. Multiclipped planchets will normally demonstrate clips 90° away from each other.

    Those are pretty close to 90 away from each other. I will check it out. Thanks for the information.

    It's the lighting but its same color. I heard a clip or clipped plantchet almost always have a crack in it? Is this true? This does have a hairline crack across the coin.

    Also if this was PMD wouldn't it take a super duper amount of force to do especially the uniformity of the reverse how the copper is kinda folded looking?

    POST MINT DAMAGE. Did you even look up what a clipped planchet looks like? It took me under 30 seconds to find and post these pictures.

    Looking at the back, it appears that there are older tool marks in the suspect locations. Feeling pretty sure that it's PMD. Also, if you look at the 1965 cent above, you'll see the Blakesley Affect 180° opposite the clip. Mushy and not well defined. Your coin rim looks pretty defined.
