Hi @Jeff wells and welcome to CoinTalk. Please post a clear photograph of the obverse and reverse sides of your nickel. Post an additional photograph of the error you think it has as well if you think it may help CT experts to identify what it is.
Without being able to see it, I'd value it at five cents.
Photos are an absolute necessity for questions like yours.
First, welcome to the neighborhood, Jeff!
As others have explained, we need photos. However, you should also know that a coin is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
It's worth 5 cents.
Okay finally figured out how to pull pic up! This is the 1961 error
What do you think makes it an error?
It looks to me to have been spooned.
What's that mean Rick?
Looks like something going on around the reverse rim, through pluribus unum and States of America?
There is a little roll on edge of rim
Check out this CT Thread for information about spooning. Lots of good information and really fun and interesting.
I was guilty of spooning many a nickel as a youngster. Heck, this may be one of em!
Looks damaged. Welcome to CT.
The pictures aren't that good, but...is that a circular die crack running around the reverse?...Spark
