Hello-Is this a known error? The indentations and spilling over the edge goes all around obv and rev and line up with the edge flow.
Thank you.

@Numisme, first welcome to CCF. Second, those indentations are what is known as "post mint damage" meaning this occurred after the coin left the mint. Most likely this was the result of wire cutters, but there are other tools which might cause the same pattern of damage.

Also, one other thing. Please confirm that your first picture is actually mirrored backwards. If that is accurate, then you might have something interesting!

Thank you for your input Spence.
I might have to use a better camera, because the sides really seem to be "flowing" out of the same area's, lined up with the impressions on both sides.
I'm not familiar with the mirroring idea but I probably caused it with my phone camera and some gyrations up and down loading and trying to orient it correctly.
I'll see if I can figure out and possibly duplicate the error.
Thanks again I appreciate the help.

To CCF! It's just Post Mint Damage. It happened after the Mint. Not an error.

I have a coin very similar, and somewhere in the depths of my memory I seem to remember that in the 1930's, 40's, or 50's, that nickel rims were purposely cut/filed that way to cut thread. In the days when sewing was actually done, the seamstress would carry a nickel with notched rims, and when strong thread needed to be cut, zappo! No need to find scissors or cut fingers! I could be wrong, and not quite that old, but perhaps someone else can chime in.

If the top image a mirror reflection? The second image looks like a normal view of the nickel with the correct direction showing.
(On cell phones if you take a selfie on some phones, the image with show an image that is mirrored and not the right orientation)
