    It is basically a worn nickel with accompanying mild PMD..... No numismatic premium. Cheers, RickO

    That is a very overused die. Nickels in particular from that era (early to mid 1980s) often show this sort of effect.

    I strongly recommend that you read other threads on the forum. I go in once or more a day and run down the list of threads on the first page and open over half of them. There is a lot of good information there.

    Just this week (maybe yesterday?) there was a thread about this exact issue, along with pictures.

    By the way, I never paid much attention to these extremely worn die coins years ago but I find myself putting them aside now. They are fascinating examples of an extreme part of the minting process.

    I had to look again to see the carpet. :D

    By the way - good pics and diagram. It really helps in looking at what you are asking about.

    I agree with this and will add that the Philadelphia coins from 1980 through 1986 are of very poor quality compared to the D mint counterparts.
    D mint coins in general since 1980 or so usually look vastly better that the P mint coins.
