Wondering if third is caused by geese filled die or worn die deterioration.

I'm fairly new to errors so take that for what it's worth.

I'm not sure if it's just a really worn nickel, really poor strike or it was struck through grease at the mint. Someone that knows more than I will be along soon.

EDIT: After looking at it again I think it's just a very well circulated coin.

Looking at the 2 l's in Monticello I would say this is a grease filled die,But it's so little and heavily worn that I would toss it back.

It looks like it was Struck Through Grease, but circulation wear and tear has taken a heavy toll on this coin.
