It's not an unusual color for nickels.
I don't generally care for toned coins but this golden hue on nickels is pleasing to me.
That's toning I believe. I have some coins that have a gold tone to them that are not silver, and the shade is close to your war nickel.
And, as far as weighing the coin, I don't think that will give you an answer either way. If it were plated in gold, the weight difference would be so small that it would be within tolerance for the planchet weight.
