i suspect the nickle I received as change from a soda machine is more than likely a dryer coin. But Just in case its something different please enlighten me. Thanks in advance for your expertise and time.

I'm amazed at how the coin can shrink in size. Thanks for your feedback!

dryer coin. The weight will be normal. The edges are flattened inwards from the commercial drums falling distance.

Looks like the coin went on a long ride.

The longer the ride, the more damage happens.

Rock tumble might abrade away the lettering but it won't push the rim in into the lettering.
