This is a 1985 Canadian nickel I found recently. I have 0 experience in coin roll hunting which is something I recently started due to the weather here in Wisconsin. Myself and my phone listed experience believe this nickel is struck over a different coin. I posted some photos(not these) on another forum and was told I'm seeing things wondering if that is the general consensus. What I see-below the queen I see what appears do be a date-in the at the base of queen I see what appears to be the lines from a previous bust-on the neck I see an I on the left and a stretched E or F followed by other unidentifiable letters on the right-I see outline lines that I believe to be a previous bust. Reverse-i see a curved line off the bottom of A and continuing to rim- I see what I believe to be letters stamped over between the words Canada and the date. I understand the coin is damaged and perhaps I'm just seeing things but at the same time these elements seem slightly raised so I don't know how it could be damaged.

I am just confused as to how PMD is raised elements and when you look at coin with the naked eye it just looks like a very shiny nickel. I had adjusted hue and contrast to highlight what I am seeing.

All I see are digs and gouges that are recessed and PMD. The only thing raised I see is displaced metal from the external damage. Your coin is just a copper nickel 5 cent piece worth 5 cents Cdn or 3.5 cents US.

Your has just been damaged.
It is only an error if it happens during the actual striking
of the coin. Anything that happens after that, no matter how,
is considered damage or PMD
Don't argue with an idiot, he will beat you with experience.
