Well I'm not a nickel expert, but from my research on Henning nickels not all of them have the same reverse or are overweight. This one fits what I am calling die 2, where the it is underweight and does not have the gap in the R of PLURIBUS. Or maybe it is a fake Henning?

This nickel comes in at 4.79g, which is pretty close to the 4.85g for the known underweight Henning nickels. And pretty sure it is not silver so not just a removed mint mark. Additionally it has a worn obverse die showing heavy flow lines.

The die markers for die 2 are listed as raised dots between the IN and GOD (clearly visible) and above the left side of building on the reverse (also clearly visible).

So anyone with better knowledge than I should help clarify if I am getting this wrong, but I do believe this is a Henning.

The obverse has the Henning look, the reverse not as much.

The dot above the left side of the memorial seems like it confirms it as a Henning.
