    Environmental damage, that coin spent a considerable time in or on the ground.

    Nickels are composed of Cupro-Nickel. That means they contain Copper. Environmental Exposure will tone it.

    Here are examples from my metal detected finds.

    A true Nickel struck on a copper planchet intended for a Cent would be the same weight, size and thickness of a Cent.
    Here's an example from my collection.
