    I just found this CRH.

    Is it improperly annealed? It is the same date and everything. Also, anyone know how much it's worth? That is, if it is improperly annealed. (Which I believe it is)

    Sorry it's a bit blurry. But I figure your just looking for color difference.

    You're forgetting something, comparing it to a 1962 nickel. Before 1982, Canadian nickels were PURE nickel. After that they are 75% nickel, 25% copper like ours. It's like comparing apples and oranges. But you may have something, I don't know.

    I did not realize that. But it should still be fine, as more recent canadian nickels I have found contrast it the same way. I only put the comparison in there so you could see the color better. It is harder to see without something silver in the pic.

    Typo, I should have said 75% nickel. Corrected.

    I’d say environmental toning
    I get a huge amount of Canadian coins near Syracuse,NY
    Always save the pure nickel pre-82
    I have 50 pounds of post 82 from CRH. Banks don’t want them.
    Someday I’ll get to Canada again

    Living in northern Ohio, I used to see a lot of Canadian coins. Now I see hardly any.
