It is a trick coin. I have a few two head and two tails coins myself.

Take a hugeeyes at your 1st image,... Notice the line just inside the outer edge, where the obverse of a similar dated nickel was cut down and made thinner, then inserted into the rear of another nickel with a milled out reverse.
