I'm pretty sure this is a dryer nickel vs some planchet error, just seeking opinions. First one I've seen in hand. Thanks

Coin on the left, 4.93 grams, is the coin in question, coin on the right, 5.0 grams, is a normal coin.

Aye, a beautiful example of a Zombie-Jefferson *cough* "Return to Monticello" dryer coin. :-)

Is this special or some severe PMD?
