    Strange Nickel

    This 1964-D Jefferson Nickel has some strange things going on.

    1. It is definetly struck off center
    2. It is much shinier than any other nickel I have
    3. There is no detail in Jeffersons hair, notice the pony tail

    Anyone know anything about this error, I'd really appreciate some input as I am not a coin expert

    Re: Strange Nickel

    There are no design elements missing, so it's not technically off-center, It has probably just gone through a washing machine or something, which would explain its appearence, and it's 40 years old, which would explain the lack of detail. I'm sorry, It's not an error.

    From the Redbook-

    "The designer's initials were added below the bust in 1966, and the dies were further remodeled to strengthen the design in 1971, 1972, 1977 and 1982."

    Would explain some of the obvious differences in the details. It is slightly off center, but this is common.

    Bummer dude

    Thought I had something.

    Sitting on my desk mixed in with all my other coins it stands out, it looks so different than the other coins.

    Thanks for your quick help n_sandler4 and Jeffro
