It looks like a normal stained circulated nickel.  It's called environmental damage.  Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.  It looks like it is environmental coloration from being in red dirt . Coins are easer to see if photographed on a white background.

Nickels are made from an alloy containing 75% Copper and only 25% nickel.  When exposed to certain environmental conditions, the copper can stain and discolor.  Sorry, but not an error.

There is such a thing as a Black Beauty a Improperly Annealed coin . That would be a far chance that you have a overcooked coin the mint is so much better at quality control then they were in the past.:whistle:

It's an ordinary 5-cent coin with surface discoloration. No value to a coin collector.
