I have a nickel I have found that I would like others opinion on. It would be a new error coin!

The date seems to be 000 with the first digit missing.. Just looking for another opinion!

Looks like a good deal of post-strike damage--staining/mild corrosion in this case. A missing 2 could be the result of a Grease Filled Die.

aboard Jennifer! The nickel you have is dated 2000 with the P mintmark for Philadelphia. This nickel seems to have suffered some sort of environmental damage to get it this weird color, so this is what we call post mint damage, or PMD.

@jenn, first welcome to CCF. Second, the surface staining is a bit distracting, but I agree that the reason for the missing number 2 in the date is most likely due to this coin being struck from a grease-filled die. That is a fun find.

Environmental chemical staining and/or mild corrosion. I agree with Spence, most likely a partial Grease Filled Die effecting the date, but very minor with no real premium.

Always a good idea to post photos of both sides of your coin. Thanks.
