Hello my name is teri I'm new to this coin stuff. My brother and other family members are and have been into collecting and finding errors for some time now. I however never got into it until now. I just recently found a 1996 d Jefferson nickel in my pocket change. It is slightly fatter than regular nickels the color is off sort of dull it looks as though it make be on the wrong planchet. Can some one help me with this please and thank you?

Welcome to the forum! Great question. Looking at the side by side edge comparison, it appears to be an optical illusion. For whatever reason, I've noticed the 2018-19 nickels have a more squared off edge. So much so that it's near razor sharp. Even so, that edge diminishes with circulation. The only sure way to tell is a digital scale. The weight should be +/- 5 grams with a diameter of 21.21 mm. Finally, a wrong planchet would have signs of copper at the edge.

The weight will be normal. Note the thicker nickel is also smaller around. So the coin was altered after a strike. It maybe a dryer coin or a spooned coin. PSD

Thank you for your information. I was trying to upload some more images of it but I cant seem to do it right I'm so new at all of this. I actually have a few coins that I wanted to get opinions on only if I could load the things correctly. Obviously I did it the first time but seems now I cant figure it out.#129322;#129322;#129322; how do n.v I go about asking others questions about my Lincoln cents I have a very very pretty shiney 1972 d it has some little places on it but it's beautiful for the most part and then I have some 1970's 71 and 72 s Penny's. I'm thinking that maybe I should go to a local coin store or something around here where I live. I'm pretty sure that there are a bunch where I live.

I am also wondering if there is anyone here that would be willing to maybe email me so I can send images and maybe get some of my questions answered until I can figure out how to upload on here?

I'm gonna tell you how I post pics. I use my phone, so I don't know if it'll be different on a computer.

Before I even make a post, I take pics on my phone, when ready to post, I click "new post" at the top of page, then I click "free imagine optimizer", it'll open a new tab. Then, I make sure images are below 300kb, otherwise you won't be able to post pics. I save copies from "free image optimizer" to my phone. Close the tab. Go back to your post, click "upload images", and then it's self explanatory. Hope this helps! Also there's a link to "image tutorial" when are making a post!

You can figure it out, it's not hard!

Cheers

Thanks rookie2018! I am also using my phone to d ol the images. I get them perfect and then I get lost. I could also be because I seem to get my little bouncing on me right when I sit to look at my coins. I really appreciate the help. I posted a topic about a 1986d penny not long ago and had some questions about it. I'm trying to figure the upload out now. I'm such a nerd but like u said I will figure it out.

The edge is "fatter", but the diameter is less. This is a " dryer coin".
