    The 1990 looks torched as in propane.

    Looks more like Environmental Damage
    I metal detect and have found dozens of Nickels such as yours
    Not a Mint Error.. Worth 5 Cents
    This is due to the nickel being exposed to dirt, sand, soil, the weather elements. Also occurs on Clad Coins.

    well, (a) get a propane torch canister and nozzle
    (b) turn on the gas
    (c) light the gas
    (d) point it to a coin
    you've now torched a coin.

    but it looks like environmental damage anyways.

    Kind of smooth for a ground find.

    Possibly subjected to extreme heat ( as in: housefire ), or improperly annealed? JMO.
