Rick, what is the weight of your coin, and also what is the thickness?
I have one of these as well; it weighs 4.64 grams (normal), but it is slightly (10%) thinner than a normal 1998 5 cent piece. It has a copper look to it, not nickle.
I feel that it could have missed the nickle plating step, except that this coin is supposed to be an cupro-nickel alloy (75% copper, 25% nickel); not plated.

Here it is, if it loaded OK.
I can't accurately measure mine either, I just compared it to a regular 1998 5 cent coin.
