  Clipping \Clip"ping\, n.
     1. The act of embracing. [Obs.]
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. The act of cutting off, curtailing, or diminishing; the
        practice of clipping the edges of coins.
  
     Note: This practise was common when precious metals such as
           silver or gold were used in commonly circulated major
           coins, such as the dime, quarter, and higher
           denominations; scoundrels would remove small slivers of
           precious metal from the edges of many coins, eventually
           accumulating enough precious metal to be worth a
           significant sum, while passing on the clipped coins at
           their nominal values. After most governments
           discontinued coinage in silver and gold in the late
           1900's, the practice became obsolete. The serrations,
           or milling, at the edges of coins was introduced to
           defeat the practice by making the result of clipping
           evident. Many coins continued to be made with milled
           edges even after the practice of clipping was rendered
           pointless by use of non-precious metals in coinage.
           [1913 Webster +PJC]
  
                 clipping by Englishmen is robbing the honest man
                 who receives clipped money.        --Locke.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     3. That which is clipped off or out of something; a piece
        separated by clipping; as, newspaper clippings.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     4. (Football) The act of hitting a player from behind, for
        the purpose of blocking. It is illegal in football because
        it can lead to injury to the blocked player, who cannot
        anticipate the action. A penalty of 10 yards or more may
        be assessed against the team of the offending player.
        [PJC]
