What is the value of a 2000 nickel that was struck slightly offset on front and back?

You most likely have what's called an off-center strike. It

happens when the coin blank ("planchet") doesn't seat properly in

the press collar to receive its images from the dies. Because of

the large number of coins struck each year, these errors are not

uncommon. A modern Jefferson nickel such as yours might retail for

3 or 4 dollars, depending on the amount of offset.
