If I look well to the coin and how the design is flattered, show that it is PMD. Grease accumulation for this year of strike do not exist or could be.

A Greaser for sure. Not uncommon.

With both obverse and reverse effected at almost at the same area, this might be a tapered planchet. Never seen it in a newer nickel. Can you see any taper? Weight?

I thought about a tapered planchet,but the rim looks normal to me.Would a tapered planchet weigh less?

It weighs 5 grams and is even all around, so it can't be tapered right?

You're right John, I didn't think about the rims. A taper depending on severity would be light. Ok at 5 it's grease.

This type of error is called a Struck Through Grease filled die (or just "filled die") error." 2005 seemed to be a big year for greasers, the 2005 Kansas State Quarter "In God We Rust" Error was that same year. There are 4-5 of the nickels on ebay at the moment in the same area.
