I found this nickel ,I know nothing about coins.I'm going to keep it because it's unusual but I'm super curious if it's valuable.

@jess, first welcome to CCF. Second, yes of course keep anything you want. From this picture though it looks like someone has sanded down the features rather than this being a mint error.

I hear what you are saying @jess, but the image that you provided seems to show a whole bunch of parallel scratches. Perhaps add a close-up pic of the smooth area to this thread?

Appears to be a product of a Magicians coin. See if a dime fits in that hollowed our area.

At this point, I'm seeing damage, not a mint error. Consider posting new photos--large and sharp--of both sides of the coin. Thanks.

The sanding marks tell the whole story. Chances are, now it is under weight.

As suggested, please show us overall photos of the entire coin, both sides, and a few closeups. We want to help you, but cannot without better photos.
