A friend of mine thinks that the D has a "tail" to it which makes this coin valuable. He also claims that the building on the front has doubling. To me it just looks like a hit mark and old worn die respectively but can an expert here see anything special about this coin?

Thanks for your help!

Looks like a well circulated nickel to me...value 5 cents
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

I don't see anything that brings added value with this nickel, just normal circulation wears.

I agree with all of the above. The building is on the reverse and is named "The Jefferson Memorial" (fyi). Lots of history in your hands, but overall there's nothing out of the norm with your coin. Keep searching!
ça va bien aller

The side with the portrait of Jefferson is the Obverse. The side with the building (The Monticello) is the reverse. The "D" is a mint mark showing that this coin was struck at the Denver mint. With 261,405,000 Jefferson nickels minted in Denver in 1973, it's not a rare coin. If this coin was in uncirculated condition, it would have a value of $1 to $250 according to the PCGS Price Guide, but in this condition it's just worth face value.

Ummm, merclover? That's the Monticello on the reverse. It was Jefferson's home, not a memorial.
