Good day to everyone viewing my post.
I personally see what could be countless errors of every type. I am new to this so I am reaching out for and advice on this.
Errors unknown, but seems to me on both sides of coin has errors.

I see zero errors. Can you be more specific? Looks like a circulated coin struck with a late stage die to me.

Circulation wear and deterioration are not an error, it is damage.

I am not an expert and just learning so please help me learn please.
What I think I see is random numbers and letters misplace on both sides like on the face almost center on top the ear I see a lonely single A, around the ponytail I think is a misplaced star just for starters. I wil edit and highlight all that I see.
Thanks

Extreme die polishing and a VLDS (Very-Late-Die-State) die struck your coin.

A damaged coin.

A great help to save yo time in the long ru would be to spend some time understanding the minting process so you have an idea what cannot happen at the mint. Another really good idea is to spend some time reading about what coin errors actually are at error-ref.com.

We all are in a state of learning no matter how long we have been in the hobby. But a good grasp of what is behind how a coin is made really saves time in the long run b/c you can know what it is you are looking for/at.

Cajuncoinhunter, unless you can photograph what you are seeing, I am afraid we can't help you very much. You say you see errors everywhere, we see a normally worn nickel. Your photos seem very good, but we just can see what you are seeing.

to the CCF. Keep searching and sharing!

It is not a damaged coin. It looked that way when it was struck. Just a set of extremely worn dies.
