This could happen if two blank planchets got into the press together, causing one to get stamped with only the heads side, and the other to get stamped with only the tails side. This is a relatively rare error, and could be worth $50 to $100 or more. This could also be a normal nickel that somebody has altered. If it weighs significantly less than 5 grams, then I would say that it has been altered and has no added value.
