Hi guys,

I am new to coin community. I found this 1964 D nickel in my father's 1964 United States Mint Set and noticed that the rim on the obverse above Jefferson's head is flat or almost gone. Is this an Off Center Coin Strike Error?

Secondly, on the reverse it looks as though the mint mark 'D' been double died?

Lastly, wanted to ask why the color of this coin is more satiny? Is this a special strike or a proof coin?

Thanks very much. I appreciate all your comments which help me learn more about this 1964 D coin and error's I can't see or know about.

Up to 1989 if the mint mark looks doubled,then we /they are called re-pounced mint marks (RPMs) and if your not familiar with this site Varietyvista.com, check it out, they list most all double dies and RPMs
Others should be by to answer your other questions...

The thinning of observe rim is due to a misaligned die, sometimes abbreviated MAD. The mint mark might be doubled, which would be a repunched mint mark, or RPM. A closeup image of that area is needed to be sure. The satiny look can come from dies that are fresh and have not yet stamped out many coins, often called an early-die state, or EDS. Personally, I'm a fan of early-die state coins, but even so do not think you coin carries a big premium because many other 1964 nickels exist in an early die state. Worth maybe 50 cents or $1 at best.
