    Yep, certainly looks legit to me, though I'm no specialist in such things. I'll leave the more experienced error/variety folks to discuss Blakesly effect and all that stuff.

    Is the edge thinner on the opposite side of the clip?

    It's not actually clipped. It's an Incomplete Planchet.

    Dearborn Above average collector - Is that an Error?

    This brings up a good point. Does the Royal Mint use the same process of upsetting a blank into a planchet, thus allowing the the Blakesly effect to form? Or is their process different?
