With such a small clip, there would be little or no Blakesley effect.
According to Ken Potter ,
"However, the "Blakesley effect" does not always appear on the struck coin; most probably due to a heavy strike, and collectors must learn to recognize other diagnostics of a genuine clip. Look for tapering at the edge (especially at the extreme opposite edges or lips of the clip where it meets the raised rim) and notice how the metal flows and design details close to the edge stretch or elongate. Not all of these effects always occur and sometimes they are minimal but one or more of these diagnostics will generally be present on a genuine clip."
This one does seem to be well struck.
I will need to remove the funk collected around the inside of the rim.
Metal movement, yes, but metal doesn't flow like water, and such a small clip would cause very little metal "flow", hence little Blakesley effect.
