*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

So Ive had these 2 Nickels for a while and always wondered what makes them these brownish colors. The top one is more red than the bottom which is a much more brownish, but any feeback would be nice & 😀 . Personally I think they look cool even if they are super common.




I understand the photo is sideways but the photo editor made it like that. Original photo was taken properly.

Environmental Damage, PSD. Might have been a metal detector find.

Exposed to soil can cause coins to appear this way. Rescued from burial to re-enter circulation. A resurrection of sorts. I've done it many times.

Yes sorry about that. One potential solution is to hold your phone horizontally when taking pictures.

Looks like environmental damage, as stated.
