    Yes, it is indeed a shield nickel. Unfortunately, not worth much if any more than face value.

    Where did you get it? My step-father dug one up in our yard in KY one time. I think it was in worse shape.

    Have it slabbed. Good for a lowball registry set.

    If it was for a POOR-1 registry and had even
    less than a typical POOR-1, would it get a bean?

    Now that would be the one bean that I would pay extra for.

    For that poor thing (as in Poor-1 ;)) to get slabbed, you'd still need to have a readable date, or at least a discernable date. It doesn't look like it even has that.

    Shield nickels, even at much higher grades, are notorious for corrosion. This one looks like it might be problem-free, just honest wear. A ton of honest wear. :)
