Hello fine people. I have been holding on to this coin for a while, no definite idea whats going on with it. Perhaps someone may have an answer.

It weighs 5.65g and it looks like there is an extra indentation running top to bottom on the front of the face. Half of the Voyageur dollar canoe maybe&, not really sure. Any ideas?

Looks to me like a well damaged and worn nickel., nothing there that would
occur during the striking of the coin.
Check your scales, unless it is counterfeit, it is overweight, should be 4.54g.

Scale is accurate so its over a gram off weight wise. As far as wear goes, possibly but its been sitting in a box since the 70s.

That coin should be made of chrome-plated steel. That coin clearly is not made of chrome-plated steel. It appears to be made of something much softer, like lead.

It therefore must be a counterfeit. Presumably a circulating counterfeit, since no coin collector is going to be fooled by it and 1952 5 cent coins aren't all that rare to start with.

Looks like a lead cast counterfeit. Try rubbing the edge of the coin on a white sheet of paper, my bet is that it leaves a grey streak.
