I tried to take different photos to show about my inquiries. I know the star is there but it's somewhat invisible as well.

It may be nothing but I just need to ask and get your opinions on what you think I may have here. The weight is 4.97g.

Again, thank you much.

You have a completely normal Jefferson nickel. The lack of the star and weak bulging date is the result of a completely worn out die. I wouldn't even go so far as to say this is a partially Grease Filled Die. There are too many flow lines on the side of the coin where the date is which signifies a die that should have been retired before it struck this coin.

Actually it is normal, but not a Struck Through Grease. But is Die Deterioration Doubling. Which will get worse with age.
