2005 D buffalo nickel (speared)

Pretty sure it would have to be in the EXACT same spot to be the same error.  Defects in dies don't move around...


That looks like it's just a nasty scratch..

Thompson2 is correct.

What you have looks like a die scratch. A genuine speared Buffalo has a die scratch or gouge (seen it called both) closer to the middle. It has to be exactly as shown in the this photo to be a speared buffalo.
