Looks like a normal 1961-D nickel to me, can you point out what you think is an error?

I also can't find the page on cointrackers that gives a coin like this value that high.

It would have to be in high mint state to have real value. This coin is not mint state.

Your coin is worth 5 cent. Don't listen to deceiving websites like that, they always give outrageous valuations to make people think they have something that's really nothing.

A FS '61D can fetch 4k in just 63. Not too many of them out there. I believe PCGS has certified less than 5, in all grades.

That $1250 is for a MS-65+ (probably with full steps) your coin is nowhere close to that level of condition. It is more like 5 cents and you can find similar coins in bank rolls.

The last FS in 65 sold for 23K in a Bowers & Stacks auction, I believe.
