Hello all. I was going through my change and found this nickel. Is this a mint error or some other damage? If a mint error, is it worth anything? Thx

It's just Post Strike Damage or PSD. Nothing in the minting process could have done this. If you see an area on a coin that's raised above the normal height is almost always displaced metal from damage

Keep looking and please post if you have a question!
The first US coin motto was found on a 1792 half disme and read: "LIB (erty) PAR (ent) OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY"

Most likely deliberate damage. In the future, you'll get more replies if you show your images right-side up.
