I found this 1955 D nickel and to me it looks like the D/S. I included a photo from one I found online showing an example.

Am I correct?

OMMs and RPMs can be tough to distinguish from Machine Doubling. Having said that, your coin does appear to match the sample you show from the book, so I'd say, yes, it's a D over S. Nice find.

Wow, thank you and this is my first error coin I've found. Too bad the coin is in such rough shape but hey, I'll take it!

I'm sorry but I don't know what that means since I'm new to this. Can you explain it better to me?

I centered the images, made them the same width. So the locations of the mintmarks will be in the same location if they are from that die. Thus proving they a match. Mintmarks are hand punched into the die and can vary in location.

MDS and LDS refer to the state, or age, of the die. When a partcular die begins to strike coins, that die is in an Early Die State. As it strikes coins, a given die slowly wears down, leading to an increase in distortion of devices on the coins it mints. A die that exhibits much wear is said to be in a Late Die State. The coins it produces are often described as LDS coins.

I checked Wexlers and this is the closest I could find. This is the 1955-D 5 WOMM-002
Description: D/S

Do you think I have this one? And thank you again for all your help! Now I need to learn about grading coins...but that's another barrel of monkeys I get to open.

Based on your newest images I would say it's a match to WOMM-002. Congrats on the nice find!

Thank you. I've got it in a flip now but I don't know what to grade it as.

Start a new topic using the pictures you have already posted in this thread. Click on the grey "TOOLS" box at the top of the page and go to "My Uploaded Images" - there you will find your previously posted pics.
Start the topic in modern coin grading and you'll get more views that way.

If there is rub on the left porch area on the coin, it might be an AU. If not, the several contact marks would lower the grade on a BU coin.
