How much do you think this nickel is worth? If you said 5-cents, you're very wrong.

It's one of five “Liberty Head” nickels made illegally by a mint worker in 1912.

Discovered in 1962, the nickel was initially declared a fake. But it's very real and very valuable.

It's headed to the auction block in April, and could fetch as much as $5 million.
