Re: Clipped 1 Cent

Also have a blank 1 cent planchet. It has a rim but nothing else. Comments? The US mint gives out blanks on the tour of the mint. See-- http://www.realcent.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1876&p=16304&hilit=school+mint#p16304 http://www.realcent.org/download/file.php?id=111

Re: 1972 Oversized Nickel

My only guess is that this nickel was between two pieces of wood and then given a really good sized force was applied pushing or "squishing" the coin outwards. Just got off work in Oregon and got to blocks of wood a sledge hammer and a 1972 Canadian nickel and a good swing and no change t...
