    A 1977-D Lincoln Memorial Cent graded by PCGS as MS-63 RD. Reading the Label it reads Reverse Clipped Die but it’s not clipped. It’s Capped. An error label on a slabbed coin that’s an error. That’s funny and it’s something you don’t see everyday.

    I’ve never heard of a clipped die. Can someone explain that to me? LOL

    There is a burr on the reverse just above the “S of” in STATES of AMERICA. In hand it sticks out just a tiny bit from the coin. These are the best pics I could get so hope it helps.

    Here’s the obverse. You can make out the date but just barely.

    I've never heard of a Clipped Die. That would make it an Incomplete Die.

    Error on the description is what occurred. That's interesting.

    I think it should be capped, not clipped. Only 2 letters difference and it is a capped die.

    Someone on CT collects error labeled slabbed coins, but I can't remember who.

    Don’t think too hard about it. I just got it last month so not about to part with it.

    The question is... Does that make the coin worth more? I say no. It's a human Error period. JMO. Thanks ! ;)

    I like the coin but the error on the label is funny to me. Who ever heard of a clipped die? Lol

    It's a reverse die cap. The label was just written incorrectly. If you return it to PCGS, they will fix it for free no doubt.

    I’ll keep as is as they call it, a clipped die, as there’s no such thing. A great label mistake with a nice error coin as well.

    Welcome to CT.
