Only counterfeit nickels I know about are the henning nickels and the die markers for those are the louped R tail in PLURIBUS. And they are usually during wartime nickels, so there would be a lack of a mintmark above the Monticello

If you don't know about the henning nickels I suggest you read this.

This year/mint the mintage was announced to be a low mintage run. So a lot of rolls were saved this year/mint. So when you look at prices for this year, the circulated coins are harder to find than the BU ones. So the prices are higher than normal for this year. Almost the same as the BU coins.

Looking at it more, the original owner may have attempted to clear up some corrosion settling in on a BU coin by pickling the specimen (note the verdigras and where it cleared up a bit leaving a dark stain). Unfortunately, the coin was too far gone and required a longer dip which damaged the coin (any length of soak would damage the coin). A place holder that you can eventually replace with a coin from the wild (with extensive looking and a bit of luck), or purchased for a few dollars. Good luck on the hunt for a better specimen!
