Hi all. This is my first post and I'm a newbie so go easy on me if I say something wrong please.

Is this PMD or was it broadstruck? It weighs 4.64 g.

TIA! I appreciate the info I have already gained also!!

Michelle

If you can imagine a way to modify a coin to look like that, that's probably what happened. This coin might have been hammered to increase its diameter, such as to make it into a bus or train token that was slighly larger than a nickel.

A nickel that was in the wrong place at the wrong time--perhaps a tech school metal shop.

Note the surface scratches on the reverse. The coin was altered. Spender.

Thanks peeps.. I'm learning. It confused me being the same size basically but the weight was down.

The weight being reduced is because of the metal being filed/scrapped off.
