    I think you should make a poll on whether or not there should be anymore polls.

    Environmental Damage
    Here are some I found Metal Detecting.
    Now you know what happened and that your Nickel is not a Mint Error..

    Nickels are made of 25% nickel and 75% copper. If you see on your coin, it looks like it is dirty and has some garbage there that would make it appear a light green in some areas. If you ever come across (which I have not) a coin that has a missing clad layer, you will more than likely know it. Google any denomination with missing clad layer and study those photos. @paddyman98 gave you a good selection that showcase environmental damage. Study the google photos and paddy's and you should be able to determine the difference while you are searching. Have fun!!

    Nickels can't be missing a clad layer.
    The copper and nickel are alloyed and not layered.

    I wasn't very clear in that I thought the OP was wondering if they had a missing clad layer. They did ask if it was copper so I did explain that it was 75% copper. I did not state it was alloyed. My apologies.
