It's a bit strange the reverse rim looks so good compared to the obverse. Must have been rolling around at an angle

EDIT: Here's a good topic on dryer coins......

Here is a side view of this 1958 Jefferson nickel.
I just thought after seeing the pics of the other dryer coins this one is quite different.

I have never seen one like that. Its surely PMD, but I have to wonder if its from some other mechanical process?
Tumbling in a dryer would have to give it a more symmetric raising of the edge. Its like the old math homework assigned to kids to flip a penny 100 times and record how many times it lands as heads or tails. It will always be around 50/50. This coin, if in a dryer being altered, would have simply been being swept up and dropped on its edge according to the same laws of probability and should not have had one edge more rolled over than the other unless some other unknown factor was involved.

Sorry it took me so long to respond but, I had to purchase a new scale. The digital read out was no longer avail. The new scale, I took some pics of it on "g" setting reads 5.2 for the 1958 Jefferson nickel and the read out for 5.0 for a 1990 Jefferson nickel.
I thought this might help some more.
Again thanks so much for all the input you all have given.
I'm hoping the pic uploads soon.

I thought so as well it actually looks as if it was pressed only half way squeezed the face of the collar up and its the size of a dime. But the reverse side is right. That's why I am asking because its very different.

Used some type of machine on it after being struck. Note the obverse devices are covered over post strike. The outside edge of the coin is not exactly round. The collar would have left the edge circular. Altered coin.
