Is this nickel an actual error or just an unfortunate incident with a nickel at some time?

I'm not so much a newbie, but recently began collecting errors a bit more seriously and this showed up in my actual change recently!

Notice the circular abrasions...

Thank you in advance if you think you know something!

Welcome the forum.

Not an error it is PMD and intentionally done.  It certainly didn't happen during the striking of the coin. Spend it.
