I found this 1962 nickel in my change. It looks great but I was wondering if it was a proof coin.

That's what I was thinking. Do you know if there is any value to it? It obviously hasn't been in circulation very long.

100% a proof coin. Very cool to find in change! Probably not a huge value to it but it will be worth more than 5 cents. Probably $1?

Very little value as a mishandled proof - less than a dollar, I'd guess.

Proof for sure.

Weird these days to find any proof change in circulation since there isn't much a whole busted proof set could buy at face value. Let alone a nickel.
Years ago kids might bust Dad's coin sets up for pocket money but it isn't worth doing anymore.

Missing the cross bar in the "G" as well. "IN COD WE TRUST". Cool!

Good catch on the missing serif on the 'G'
