Not all Hennings have the loop in the R.
Currently working on:
Australia type set
Canada type set
Three from each country (up to 416!)
UK 20th and 21st century
IHC's! NGC certified MS-62 or better, Capital Plastics Fine or better, Dansco Fine or better, Dansco any x3, and Coin Board for wall display, any grade. (I may be a tad obsessed)

I think it's a genuine counterfeit.

My 44 Henning has no hole in the R.
I'd say this is a genuine Henning.
I have mine 35 or 40 years now and I found it loose in bag of old nickels.
They were not worth much back then and I don't think that the other dated Hennings were discovered yet or at least very few people knew of them. So I highly doubt mine was faked to imitate a Henning counterfeit.

If you are willing to spend quite a lot of time doing Google searches, you will end up finding a lot more about them, and how to identify them.

It may be a lot harder to distinguish a Henning from any other fake Nickel, but that is where you must build up your skill and experience.

For me it is not worth the bother, my numismatic interests lay elsewhere, although if one did come my way, I would seriously investigate it.

Henning nickels proporting to be genuine are offered on the 'Net for around $10 each. Unless you definitely know what you are buying, the risks are very high.
I already have an extensive 'black' collection, but not in this area of numismatics.

That was what I was thinking also, but in a different term. "A real fake." At one time the prices on these were above $50 range. Seems funny the counterfeit coins are worth more than the real deals to me?

I've seen a few of these without the "R." That didn't send a Red Flag for me. What does is if that one weigh less than 5 grams. A Henning should weigh around 5.4 grams (minus a little because they tend to get worn quite easily). This one is worn, but is half of a gram worn off?
Also, that "44" is a lot sharper than Hennings often are...Hennings tend to have a flatter "44."
Personally, and I base it only on my hunch, it is one of two things: 1.) Either someone may have scraped off the "P" of a War Nickel (not the seller per se...but someone), since a Henning will bring in more than a War Nickel. OR: 2.) Overly greased dies have been known to keep the P from striking on War Nickels. Here are Rev and Obv photos of one of those War Nickels without the P.

@ Swaffelaer , To CCF , I here you on your post about a regular War Nickel that had the MM removed to show it's a Henning , but If the color is correct on this coin I really don't believe that's what happened . I'm going with a genuine Henning . JMHO .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

I don't have a scale for coins and if I find it and get a chance I may be able convert the weight by grains to grams. Sorry my no hole R is not readily available at this time. ( I have it but it is buried someplace in the safe.)

Thank you all for the welcome!

I love Hennings, and appreciate you all letting me put in my "2 Cents" (also a coin that I love).
