These have a black tinge to them.

The slightly different color of a War nickel always stuck out like a sore thumb to me when I was hunting nickel rolls back in the day. I'd get excited to see it, because once upon a time, I used to be able to pluck quite a few out of circulation.
Nice lamination as well.
I have seen a lot laminations on war nickels. Back when I was kid, you could grab them out of circulation. I put together a couple rolls when I was high school and sold them when the silver price made them worth more than their face value.
As for the way they tone, yes, most of circulated pieces are unattractive. They look quite nice in Proof and Choice to Gem Uncirculated. I have never seen one with beautiful toning.
I have always liked the 1942 Proof War Nickel.
