At what production stage are nickels annealed?

Coil?

OR planchet?

I'm thinking before and after the blanking process. Thanks, Doug.

Adding: a typical cycle for clad coins. Excluding the clad layering, I'm thinking a nickel's prep is some what similar.

Edit: before and after the blanking process.
Second opinions are always recommended. Rookies thoughts!
Two sides to every coin. The edge makes three.
Side Note: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.

Thank you! Very helpful schematic! According to this it is the coil which is annealed and also the blank goes through an annealing process.

Someone else has said in a different post - that an improperly annealed nickel will have a shiny edge I am just looking for a way to confirm that>

I am thinking if the coil is improperly annealed but not the blank then edge = shiny. If the blank is improperly annealed then edge not shiny.?

found a dirty appearing 2019 American Memorial Park quarter yesterday searching circulated rolls and didn't think much of it at the time just odd.
It was pretty dirty appearing, spotty for it's age, yet still plenty of cartwheel luster under the spots, Perhaps that coin deserves a 2nd look at the edges. Maybe it's environmental damage some sort of chemical toning, it probably is, but maybe it's an annealing issue? Hmmm. too bad I'm at work and it will be hours still before I get home and can pull it from the return pile. LOL

I think the edge being shiny is an effect of the collar from the striking, forming and scraping the edge on ejection, taking away the darkness of the improper annealing on the edge surface.
Not sure on that though but sounds plausible.

Can Improper Annealing be dipped to remove the coloration on the surface? or does it stay as part of the metal of the coin? So much I don't know about this, but I can say that a lot of ungraded examples on ebay look like buried coins and not improper annealing, so I can't really trust the interwebs for the truth. lol
