Blatantly stolen from a post by TomB a member here, but I didn't want it to fade away as it seemed like an interesting defintion:


The Blakesley Effect is a term used to describe inefficient metal flow, opposite a clip on a coin, when the rim is formed and the subsequent imperfect or incomplete rim formed at that position after striking. -- TomB

Hour by hour resolve firmly, like a Roman and a man, to do what comes to hand with correct and natural dignity, and with humanity, independence, and justice. Allow your mind freedom from all other considerations.- Marcus Aurelius -Roman Emperor A.D. 121-180

I have nothing to add or subtract, I am merely here.

I might add to clarify this effect. When TomB quoted "opposite a clip on a coin" it means the effect will be more or less 180 degrees around the rim, from the clipped area.

It still means the same thing, but being "180 degrees out" paints a picture, which I sometimes need.
