The 1990 looks torched as in propane.
How would someone do that lol
Looks more like Environmental Damage
I metal detect and have found dozens of Nickels such as yours
Not a Mint Error.. Worth 5 Cents
This is due to the nickel being exposed to dirt, sand, soil, the weather elements. Also occurs on Clad Coins.
I agree with @paddyman98 environmental damage we see several of those a week on here.
well, (a) get a propane torch canister and nozzle
(b) turn on the gas
(c) light the gas
(d) point it to a coin
you've now torched a coin.
but it looks like environmental damage anyways.
I like. Different whatever caused that color
Kind of smooth for a ground find.
Possibly subjected to extreme heat ( as in: housefire ), or improperly annealed? JMO.
