Here is a coin that has me stumped it weighs 4.84 grams if lying flat it lays inside the rim on top of a normal sized nickel yet it is thicker also. The Edge appears to be some kind of reeded lines in it and a line down the center also of the edge so I'm not sure what to make of it it appears to be possibly fake I am not sure.

Looks like a dryer coin.

I agree--mechanical damage, such as from being trapped in a dryer.

That would be a coin trapped in the internal workings of a dryer--usually a laundromat-class dryer.

If you are thinking a partial collar. These facts would need to be considered.
1. If the area inside of the collar would be the normal width of a nickel.
2. the area outside of the collar would be enlarged larger than the collar.
So being that you coin is smaller than a normal coin, it is not a partial collar issue. But being that is is smaller than normal, then I agree with the dryer coin alteration of the rim, making the rim cover the devices by damage to the coin.

I've looked at alot of dryer coin examples, even the links provided on this post. One thing stood out from every single one is that the edges/rims of those examples are rolled. Rounded. This coin is chiseled. Almost sharp. I'm not making this coin out to be anything it isn't. Just wondering if there is any possible explanation. Thanks...

It could have been turned in a crimping tool or machine. That would reduce the diameter, increase the thickness and displace the rim towards the devices. It would take some additional machining to match this coin, but it wouldn't be too hard to do.

Now you have to try to figure out why anyone would do this.
