1857 Flying Eagle Cent Clipped Planchet
The blank-copper discs used to make coins (called planchets) were punched out of a sheet of metal alloy. To get as many planchets as possible from each sheet, the punches are made very close together. In the case of this coin, the punch was positioned such that it slightly overlapped a previously-made punch hole. So, the planchet had a small curved section missing from the edge.
