1974 nickel large size 5-cents coin

Post by Lightw4re » Thu Jan 09, 2020 5:25 pm

Here's pictures of a coin received recently by email by a visitor of coinsandcanada. I don't know the exact weight and size in mm. Any thoughts?

The only thing I can think of is that it is a "Texas Coin" although I have never seen one made
from a Canadian Nickle. If you could get the exact weight, this may confirm it.

Thank you for your input @coinguy. Still trying to get the exact weight of it. I'll let you know if I got it from the owner.
