Hello everyone. This is my first post and I'm new to collecting but totally obsessed. I recently acquired a nickel from my local grocery store and upon further review I noticed a crazy error in the middle of the Monticello! I'm posting the best pics I can take, in person you can't miss it but when trying to take a photo I cant zoom in as closely as I would like. Can anyone tell me what this could possibly be? I've never seen ANY error line this before.

Why do you think this Icon is here!


Oh, by the way – the book I gave you for Christmas has to be returned to the library next week.

I've seen it a lot, always in the middle of the coin. I thought it was someone tooling around with a drill at first, but it's always shallow and I have seen maybe 2 center-holed Jeffersons for dozens of coins like this.

Maybe someone will have a lightbulb moment, but I guarantee it's just damage of some sort.

to CCF. Your photos are good. I have seen a lot over the years. I think it is caused by a vending machine,like a gumball machine. You put the nickel in and turn the knob. What ever caused it it is just post mint damage,PMD.

It is damage. It could have been stepped on and twisted. Spendable.

I have one (probably from a similar year) that has the exact same damage on the reverse. It may be from spinning in a coin counter/sorter or some other machine. It's definitely not a one-off manmade error, there are too many examples for that.

Still, it's just PMD and not an error. Keep searching!

Thank you all for your responses! Good to know, oddly enough I ended up finding another identical one from the same year and everything so damage must be the answer!! Thanks again!
