Like the title says, I am a noob and would really appreciate help identifying this 1867 Nickel I purchased off of EBAY. I have had no luck searching for it and I do not want to go to a coin shop unarmed with no idea of its value or history.

like I said, any info is better that what I have, thanks!

Appears to me as a counterfeit 1867 5C Five Cents, Judd-561 Pattern Coin.

looks off to me. The Judd-561 Pattern coins were all struck as proofs & that does not appear to be a proof coin.

I wish I had a better grasp on this stuff, thats why I am on here, but do they counterfeit coins like this often? I had never even seen pictures until you gave me the judd-561 info

I suspect the coin is counterfeit.

Photographing the coin head-on, on a flat, non reflective surface will go a long way in helping us to help you. Sharp focus is a must.

Hope you didnt pay too much, unfortunately they do counterfeit all coins especially morgans / peace / bust / Seated dollars / rare dates / patterns etc.

I dont think I paid $5, but it was certainly something that caught my attention just because I had no knowledge of patterns like this and it peaked my curiosity

I really appreciate all the help, this is why I came here. I am glad that I didnt invest any $ into it, but I can certainly start to look a little closer at future purchases! Most of my collection I have found metal detecting and such, so the concern was never really there, but I guess EBAY is where anything is possible

One more thing, in the future, should there be more contrast between the background and the devices on the coin?
background shiny and devices should be frosty and more distinctive?

I would file a claim with ebay even though you only paid $5. The only way to stop these people is to make it hurt their wallet. In the future I would register at Heritage Auctions (free) and look up the coins before you purchase them. A search of their auction archives on "1867 5c" and coins matching yours pop right up. You would have quickly seen that these sell for several thousand dollars. Post the seller name so we can see what else they're scamming.

A fairly inexpensive lesson in counterfeiting all things considered. But like kbbpll said, I think you should file a claim.
