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).
