That appears as if the copper plating was stripped or dissolved after mintage because it is rough and cloudy looking. If the die struck an unplated planchet, then the coin would look smoother and shinier.

(Thanks to Coop for the pictures from another thread)

That coin looks like it was treated with some sort of chemical. I have found one real one in circulation, a 1999-D.

CRH Nickeloholic. On the way to 1,000,000 nickels searched in two years! Already have found TWO complete Jefferson sets over that time!
