MS-65 , Not FS . As I'm not an error collector would I be safe to say the reverse is a die clash ?

MS-66. Is the color correctly represented? When a nickel this old look so blast white it suggests to me it has been dipped.

Not sure what a dipped coin would look like, but this is very brilliant, with no toning that I can see. I have gathered a few other nickels to give it more perspective.

I have dipped Nickels. Don't do it. You will not like the results. The Nickel surface is quite delicate and once you dip, 80% of the time some of that surface is removed which reveals hidden imperfections just below.

Pretty ! It's amazing how some of the old coins survive the test of time.

a lot of older coins that are in MS+ condition are usually due to being stored in bank rolls that were for some reason never opened and spent, or protected by a collector for many years, then spent by a future relative later on,
