So I have a 2000 D nickel and it looks weird , for starters it does not have the outer ring on the front of the coin ( sorry I don't know the proper name ) around "In God We Trust" and "Liberty."

"Liberty " is all messed up and I can't really read it , same with "We " in "In God We Trust"
The face is all messed up, I don't even see his eye.
And on the back it's a bit scratched up.
I see no "e" in "Five"

I have been looking online for something close to my coin and I had no luck.
I don't know what kind of error this is and if it's worth keeping on my collection?
It has been in my collection for a very long time and I think it's about time I learn more about it.
If anyone knows what kind of error this is ?
(I can't post more photos .
It's giving me a hard time posting photos.)

Sorry but not an error that I can see.
There is nothing on the coin that can't be attributed to damage and circulation wear.


Correct typo

Unfortunately, it looks like the coin was damaged (e.g. scraped, dragged) after leaving the mint, or PMD, possibly compounded by being weakly struck to begin with.

In a word: "Damaged". Not a mint error. When a coin is damaged, it is still worth face value. Nothing more and nothing less.
So you do this to your new truck:

Does it increase the value? Is it a factory error. Same with coins. Damage even on a nice coin, lowers the value as much as 90%. It turns a good coin into a cull coin. Save the best, spend the rest. (That is the job they were made for)

Sorry this website is giving me problems , I went to go fix my typo and photos and it keeps crashing...
So it's just a normal messed up coin worth face value , is that why I couldn't find anything about it ?

2000 is one of those years nickel dies were worked to death. Your coin was struck during what's called a very late die state, one when the dies are worn. It also shows signs of being Struck Through Grease. I have a few similar examples from 2000. After minting, your coin got beat up in circulation. No premium, but you might save it as an example until you find one less beat up.

Sometimes the site runs slow, and take a long time to get going again. But that is a rare event. Most of the time it is working fine. (when not, I know who to text) LOL
