I was told this may be a OMM-004 and was also told that I should find what kind of doubling is located on the foundation of the Monticello. I'm guessing shift doubling!

Jim0815, I've tried to form pictures to show what I believe I am seeing under my microscope. Second picture I see D over S over D. Third picture on the foundation of the Monticello I see D over S.

Is there a name for this type of coin error?

Other than a well circulated worn nickel, what are you seeing as an error?

I'm laughing definitely a worn coin! No, no errors I think this could only have been done intentionally. What I really want to know is, is this a rare variety?

It is called a spender. A VLDS (Very-Late-Die-State) die struck the coin. (Note on the mintmark area the horizontal lines above and below the mintmark? Those are called die flow)
A lot of circulation wear on this coin. When you get a chance check out Variety Vista to see what to be looking for on a variety coin. Then you will spot what to look for:
Variety Vista has no listing for a DDO
DDR for this year mint:
http://varietyvista.com/04a%20JN%20...201955-D.htm
RPMs:
http://varietyvista.com/05%20JN%20R...%201955D.htm
Looks these up and see what DDR or a RPM would look like this year/mint.
On the DDR the spreads are harder to see on these.
On the RPMs, note that the affected areas of the RPM are raised as high as the mintmark, enlarging the size of the mintmark.
Get to know what to look for. We use maps all the time to know how to get to where we are going? Why not read on the variety sites, what to look for.
