I found this coin roll hunting, and is bright and lustrous but looks worn down. I am also not ruling out struck thru grease, since the hair details in the head are mostly gone, and there is clear flatness in some areas on the reverse.
I have compared this to a 2015-P nickel for comparison.



If this is PMD, then it don't look like it since the luster is still intact .

I am going to lean towards a VLDS coin.

I agree that this is a VLDS die that probably have been put down before now. Jefferson looks like he would if he were still alive.

I was leaving my 2 biggest possibilities out there, either Grease Filled Die or extreme die wear consistent with VLDS dies. After looking at it more, it is definitely not a PMD event; it has cartwheel luster both sides. I felt this one could go either way, but not necessarily both at once which is not likely.

If it were a Struck Through Grease the devices would be smaller than normal not larger, look at the letters.

Looks like the worst of both worlds. DDD and Some Grease Fill. Still not a premium for the coin. Just an educational piece to a new collector or a spender. The coin is in your hands.
