die clash question

I know a minor die clash normally does not generate much interest.  Would it make a difference if the minor clash is from another denomination?


Looking through rolls this past weekend, I found a 1999 Lincoln cent with what I believe is a minor clash of a dime reverse in the right field.  Specifically, just the very bottom of the branch to the right of the torch.  

To test my thought, I took a dime and put a 2x2 over it and marked where the bottom of the branch was.  I then flipped it over and placed it over the cent to see if the design would have put the clash where it was.  It was actually higher in the field than the actual clash.  Then I decided to do a search for '1999 Lincoln cent mule'....and to my surprise there was one I found on Heritage Auctions slabbed PCGS.  Even more to my surprise, it had a rotated reverse that would have the clash where it is.

So, I am excited that I may have found a multi denominational clash in circulation as minor as it may be. Whether it has much value or not. I will have it looked at next week to see if I can get validation from someone who knows much more than me.

If anyone can give me any direction,  ideas, or resources, I'd greatly appreciate it.

This is the best I could take.  In field under the "ST".

 Still too difficult to see any evidence of that type of clash on this pic.
