    Looks like post-mint damage (PMD). As such, it is worth face value. In the future, it would likely be helpful to also include in focus images of the entire obverse and reverse, as well as the closeup shots.

    I would add that the low weight is probably due to metal being shaved or scraped off around the periphery. Note the lack of a raised, defined rim.

    Edges have been ground, shaved down on your NICKEL.
    You cannot have a rim on only one side, just a damged coin now,
