    I bought this nickel as a 1917-S coin, but to me it looks like it could be a 1918/7-D coin
    because of the appearance of a curved loop from the left end of the 7 horizontal bar -
    although from the reverse I couldn't read the mintmark. Please give your opinion.

    From what I can see, it looks like a standard 1917 Philadelphia- it has no Mint Mark.

    You say it's an S. The label says D. I don't see a mm either.
    Coin appears to have ED. In the 8 over 7, the 8 is very prominent and you have
    to look for the 7. 1917 Philly. Damaged. $3- $5 max.
    It seems the 8 over 7 is only on Denver coins.

    Looks just like a metal detected coin, one with environmental damage.
    When in the soil contaminants build up on the exterior of the coin. With different layers of tone. I see a faint looking D on the reverse but I believe it is just corrosion.

    My feeling is that the D would be more prominent and almost look like the same color as FIVE CENTS in this case, and there's nothing there.
