I've got a nickel and a penny that I think have errors. Could someone tell me if I am right? If so, how much are they worth?

@cgk, sorry but these are both just damaged coins not errors. Only worth face value.

Unfortunately these coins were damaged after they were struck PSD.

Thanks! What do you think might have happened to the nikel? That one looks odd.

Probably shot with a bb gun would be my guess

Lead pellet from a higher powered pellet gun - probably .177 caliber. Note the shape of the round head pellets.

To CCF! It's Post Strike Damage ( PSD). It's worth face value unfortunately. I would suggest going to this website, so you can learn about real error coins. There's a ton of good information here that will be very helpful. http://www.error-ref.com
