I picked up a 1965 mint set and this caught me eye. Any ideas?

@kr, that looks like an impaired proof to me. A fun find to be sure!

No proofs in 1965. A SMS PL maybe?

Ah good point @john1.

Yes most likely an impaired SMS.

Looks like a normal strike nickel. The SMS had satin looking surfaces : (Not a Nickel, but a Quarter Side by side:

Please post closer pics of the steps. If it's an FS business strike, it would be worth a lot of money, as PCGS had only graded 2.

Sometimes you'll find cameo special mint set coins in the SMS sets. They are early strikes from the dies and nice ones will command a premium. They can be deep cameo, cameo, light cameo, frosted or lightly frosted.
You definately have a 1965 SMS nickel there with a few distracting marks on the obverse. I would bet it is light cameo on the obverse and cameo on the reverse but those marks do take away a bit.
The value for these are higher than "normal" SMS coins.

Even with the picture sideways, you can tell it's not a FS.
