There is a sliver of metal on the reverse of this Jefferson nickel, and I don't know what it is.
Can you folks enlighten me? Thank you

@numi, assuming that you have used the tip of a wooden toothpick or similar to ensure that it isn't just a whisker stuck on top of the coin, my best guess is that it is the metal "smushed" up when a sharp blade made that small surface cut. I'm struggling to see how it could be anything but damage of some sort.

It's stuck on there, I'm guessing it came from the mint that way.

If it is raised, it could be a retained Struck Through.

If raised above the coin, it might be Klingon that is on for the ride?

This is the closest I am able to get, I'm using my phone and a loupe, I don't have a microscope.
