Ok here are a few good pictures, including a side by side with a normal nickel.

Would it help if I got measurements of the OD thickness of the coin where the lip is at, where it is flush with the coin, and compared that to another similar year nickel?
I appreciate all of the help and you welcoming me into the community! I have been cruising through posts for the last few days and learned a lot already.
I was upset I lost a nickel that was colored exactly like a penny, well a quick search on this forum let me know it was just environmental damage turned it that color and it was nothing special.

Thanks again!

Anyone have anymore thoughts, should I hang onto this coin, or do you think it's just damaged?

It looks rough like damage. Is the coin under weight? If so, the coin was damaged. (should be 5 grams to be normal)

No It's 5 grams but that is on a harbor freight digital scale IDK how accurate those are? I did test with another nickel and it showed 5 grams as well

Try another nickel on it to see if the tare is set. If it show 5.0 then it would give tenths. it is just say 5 then it may be not accurate enough? Or maybe the normal edge metal was moved, but still on the coin? If so, it maybe bulging outwards on that area?

Okay,
Just took it back to the scale and double checked the scale was level, zeroed, etc. It does weight 5 grams and a tested with 2 other nickels to confirm they both showed 5 grams as well.
So the upper part of the coin has less of an edge like its overall thicker in that area, and the lettering is a lot less pronounced. I dont know if this is from wearing differently due to damage? I appreciate your assistance, I am learning!

Could this be a partial collar strike?

You may need to add an image or two of the edge of the coin where the discrepancy is. And a good clear full image of both sides wouldn't hurt.

Unfortunately I do not have my USB microscope at home, here are a few pictures I have from my cell phone camera. One thing to note is at the top of the coin the ridge is almost non existent, this is the same on the rear of the coin where the "ES" in states is.

I have looked through 100s of pictures of partial collar struck coins, as well as broad struck coins. Both varieties have similarities to this coin, but I still don't know what to think. I do have a coin shop that is fairly close I could take it to and see what they have to say. Before I do that I am going to take it to work and measure the thickness compared to another coin because I believe this coin is thicker in spots compared to a "normal" nickel.

I had this coin in with a bunch of other coins and a old watch with a leather band. I believe the leather band caused the coins to start growing green stuff. I read to only clean coins if absolutely necessary and if I do use only warm water, is that accurate? If not what is the best way to get rid of the nasty green stuff growing on some of these coins?

Thanks again!

A partial collar would be wider on the area not in the collar. The OP's coin looks like something had been
placed over coin (Pipe perhaps) and then hit with a hammer. That would push the metal and distort the edge of the coin. (leaving the shavings where the damage stopped)

It's an old, worn out nickel.
