At least it's not a "dime bag"..... Phew...... glad you clarified that!!!

That's neat.  I just found an old coin purse I got years ago from Northeast Coin and there were six Sac Dollars in Mylar flips.  I believe I got them years ago in a USPS Stamp Coin Machine.  Came out as change. 

It was a cool find.  I've never found a Sacagawea dollar out in the wild, just chilling somewhere.  I have found a couple Loonies, though.  Your find was quite cool, too :)

Here are the results. This isn’t proving anything other then it’s thicker. I’ve  measured at least 10 to 15 other nickels and gotten 1.8 to 1.9 this one 2.2 all the time all the way around.

The reason it is thicker is because as it gets tumbled it pushes the metal up along the rim. The rim is the only place it is thicker.

When you said it was spooned I thought to myself how in the hell could a spoon do this and why is someone spooning nickels😂 Thank god for Google.

They do take spoons and tap them around the edges of coins until they do that. Sounds crazy but people do it. I sure wouldnt waste my time doing it.

That they do, Hog, that they do.  And I'm with you......spooning coins is yet another human behavior that I completely do not understand.  People do some weird stuff, that's for sure.

That’s crazy. I don’t believe this was spooned though. If anything got this nickel like that it definitely got stuck in some kind of machine. Constantly turning and pushing against the edge, A change machine at the bank perhaps. Maybe the edge had a little more hight to it then normal which would explain how it had enough metal to push inward in the first place. I still think it’s cool and will go with the rest of the strange things I have. Who knows maybe I can find one of these spooners to finish the job and make a ring out of it. I would actually like to see the process.
