    I just won this in a small auction and don't have it in hand yet.... The rim at around 12 o'clock... Is that a hit or is there some sort of minor clip going on here?

    I would guess PMD due to the shape of the ding.

    Hmm. Hard to say. Seller's pictures? I'll wait until you have it in hand to comment.

    Probably won't have it in hand until about this time next week. It's a local auction house that I play around on and they tend to be a tad slow with shipping.

    Definitely a very small (clipped) incomplete planchet issue. IMHO

    Cool! Thanks, Paddy.... Seems I have unintentionally entered the wide world of error collecting now.

    One look and I feel it’s the smallest clip I’ve seen in years. I say clip because it’s on the obverse and the reverse. Best to say it’s a nick of a clip. Lol

    I am not convinced it is a definite determination. I have seen similar issues before, that were post mint caused.

    We will re-investigate this deal once I have the dollar in hand.

    I am on the clipped planchet side too. The flow lines in that area look correct for a clip. The reverse may have a bit of BE near the "A" of states.

    Well-spotted! I missed that at first glance.

    I agree that the surfaces don't look like the usual "grabbed with something" PMD. I also don't see any outward deformation of the rim/edge that I'd expect if the spot got squeezed post-mint.

    Now that is a great visual aid for me. I am not a fellow that seeks out error coins. I am a die hard type coin guy. But I'll compare it to your photo once it arrives.... Is this just a matter of the planchet being stamped out adjacent to a previously punched planchet?

    The key is how it fills the collar, or not

    I didn’t intentionally purchase my 43S half as an error. It was an eBay buy with multiple coins from a dealer who needed to sell something, anything, in 2010. The staining kept out bidders and shipping was already paid along with the rest. I bulked up on silver at around $12/oz. Never dipped it but I may rethink that

    Looks like someone de-silver soldered it from a necklace or key ring loop to me.

    I'd expect a lot more ugliness on the edge if that were the case. I'd also expect more disturbance on the rays that extend into the funky zone -- but if this were a planchet void, why are those struck so strongly? Why does the E in PEACE show up at all?
