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.
