I am relatively new to looking through change to find rare coins and came across a nickel with severe differences. I attached a photo to show what I am talking about. I am wondering if there is a chance this could happen from the mint or is this definetly a post production error coin. Its raised severely and even has a letter that seems depressed on the top right and missing (the P in "Pluribus,') I thought I would post it and see what this forum thought. I am suspecting heat damage but am not knowledgable enough to know if it could be a mint caused issue or is after the fact. Thanks for taking the time to check it out!

looks like something stuck to the coin, glue perhaps?

@bri, first welcome to CCF. Second, I agree that something is stuck to this coin. If you weigh it, it may come in heavy.

I thought that at first and confirmed its not something stuck to it but rather a raising of the metal of the coin. If it is something stuck to it it would of happened before the minting because the coins marks are on top of what could be stuck to it. If it was something stuck to it wouldn't it cover up the back of the coin? I appreciate the welcome! Its been really fun searching for coins! I will weigh it but as I keep inspecting it the metal of the coin is raised itself but nothing separate is part of it or on it.

Here is another picture of it! I wish I had a better quality camera to show this but the only material is the nickel itself - there isn't anything stuck to it but rather it is all raised and altered slightly with the raising. Could this happen with burning after the fact maybe or could it be extra material when it was made? The "five," in five cents is partly normal and partly raised up on the higher level of metal. I can't measure it but its a slight raise throughout the middle of the nickel that is apart of the nickel. it weighs 5 grams according to my scale

@bri, are you sure it isn't a dried clear glue?

looks like glue to me as well.
One way to find out for sure is it give it an over night bath in pure acetone. (not fingernail polish remover - that contains impurities).

Give it an acetone bath and your "error" will probably disappear.

Take a needle and push on material, any mark at all then it is glue

No doubt it's glue, acetone soak will remove it. You wouldn't be able to see through raised metal. You're far from the first to argue.

100% Acetone from a hardware store will not harm coins and is highly spoken of when it comes to getting gunk and other residue off of a coin. It is also a great tool to diagnose a coin.
Do NOT use fingernail polish removers - that WILL damage a coins surface.
a nice acetone bath for about 12 to 24 hours should soften the stuff on this coin. I'll be looking forward to see your results.
Pleas document your process for us to follow along with you.

#128517; you all were right I get stubborn when I think I'm right but I can admit when I'm wrong. idk if it was glue but a knife scraped off (more so cracked off) whatever was on it! This was my error lol

To learn something was not being wrong but to not ask questions is to never being able to learn.

Brian9424,
. You should have used acetone. Using a metal knife would have damaged the coin and if it was some kind of an error, you would have lessened the value by 20% to 80%.
