I have had this Buffalo nickel since I was a child. I Actually traded a small nugget of Cali schwag for it. Aha. No date, strange pertrusion where date would be, reverse orientation head to Buffalo. Need some help here. Where the pertrusion is located it almost appears there is lettering around it. I see an "S" maybe? I have never seen anything like this which makes me think somebody is causing chatter over something done intentionally. Hope this is not the case. Anybody with their 2 cents, please chime in. Thank you.

It looks like it was added. There is nothing on the die that could make that. I almost looks like a rivet was applied to the coin, but there is no disturbance on the reverse.

Is the year engraved on the die each year or is there an insert there they switch out. Also would like to know where it was minted. I don't see any marking under "Five Cents"

Thank you Buck! Also wondering about the splash effect surrounding the "nipple". I am a plumber, couldn't help it. I see an S in there. Possibly other text.

Looks like it was done after the coin was worn down.

No mint mark means it was struck at the Philadelphia mint.
Whatever it is, it was done after the nickel left the mint.
Maybe some sort of fastener for a piece of jewellry.
Still considered PMD

The date is just plain worn off, this was very common on the earlier Buffalo nickels.

Probably soldered to a pin or spoon which then broke off. Just damage.

Probably right, but it's hard to imagine anyone would want the buffalo side of this coin as an adornment.

Titanka, Titanka. Consumers pour their money into Walmart cash registers as the diarrhea pours from the Buffalo's anus. This is not a good time to enjoy Buffalo chips. Wish I had a super rare unheard of mistake coin worth 2 Mil. Thanks guys. & jk.

I figured it out! Around the sacred mistakingly placed amulet it says "Satoshi Nakamoto" and he is trying to troll me with a poo coin!

Looks like a broken post for an earring or pin back. I had one like this and the same thing happened to it.

Pin back, that is. I wouldn't look good with an earring.
