Hi, Apologies for not introducing myself before now.I am from England. I am no Numismatic nor am I a serious collector reason being I realised years ago that it was/is a rich mans game & with 16 children I am anything but! lol, I have been collecting the 50ps of the Olympics etc, a friend of mine recently inherited his Aunts coins & he asked me if I could look through them for him, there are quite a few US coins/notes (mostly modern) amongst the many coins/notes etc & I think one may be what you call a Black Beauty, it's a 1979 Jefferson quarter dollar, would it be ok for me to upload a picture and hopefully someone would advise me please? I also have a few odd Lincoln pennies etc.
Many thanks in advance.

to CCF. The black beauty is a Jefferson nickel 5 cent piece. Post pics please in appropriate sections.

I would suggest taking some quality pics and post each coin individually to save from things getting confused and cluttered.

I'd bet you dollars to donuts, that if you treated it as a pocket piece,

the devices would turn silver colored. The fields would remain black.

To the funny farm!

Here is some info that may help to determine if it is or is not. I suspect it is not due to the date, Black Beauties are not known much past the 60's at most, generally only 1955, 1958 and 1959 Jefferson nickels.
