Did the usual thing today work stores had the teenage daughter think it was funny to have 18 cents thrown in my pocket. Somewhere along the way I heard the unmistakable sound of silver I hunted desperately to no avail. I get home and I still hear it thinking it's the 1982 cent composite change I hear. Upon hunting the the ting down I find it's a 2000 d nickel no different in appearance than any other so sorry havent been able to figure out the whole picture posting thing but the appearance is run of the mill for the most part. It rings like silver and weighs 4.89g any ideas on it before I am able to get it somewhere to a sigma. Sorry to the purists I dropped it on the linoleum floor like 3 dozen times #129303; this one is about composition not grade to me. Sorry for the long post also dropped 250 or so other nickels only one is in a 22 right now tho. Do any of you pros here know of a reason why 1 out of every nickle I have ever touched sounds so beautiful or any foreign planchet on the 2000d nickel?

Only took like a half hour to figure out how to post these. But very happy I figured it out sorry if they arent cropped perfectly, it isn't an easy process for a newb like me. If you have any ideas that would explain this phenomenal sound besides a foreign planchet I am all ears an eager to learn.

I am seeing a normal coin your pictures with normal circulation wear and tear. What is your question exactly? Please be more specific and elaborate, if you can.

Not a bad job of posting your first photos on CCF. I can't see anything that looks out of the ordinary either. As you said, it's the SOUND of the coin that caught your interest.

I've had coins that had a different ring but I never really found out why. I'm at a serious disadvantage now, because I have tinnitus and hearing loss. I can't hear a doorbell ring now, let alone the ring of a coin.

Anyway... I'm going to let the others on this forum figure out what's happening with your coin and I'll be waiting to hear (read) what's up. I hope it's something good! I just wanted to say welcome and give you a thumbs up on the pictures.

It seems to be a normal coin to me. The appearance is normal and the weight is normal. If it had a silver composition to give it a higher ring when dropped, then the coin would be more dense and weigh more than normal.

Only XRF analysis could determine anything further, but I don't see a need for it.

to CCF. For your first time posting pics,good job
In future posts, please remove coins from holders before taking pics and make sure to crop and rotate properly before you post the pics. Is the thickness normal?

I would not rely on the sound of the ring to determine composition. It is an indicator, not proof.

You have to compare otherwise identical coins dropped the same way on the same surface, and your ears have to be good enough/ well trained. Internal metal flaws can alter the ring tone, among other things.

I also must mention that dropping coins on hard surfaces can damage the coin.

From my post before the pictures were added I said appearance was no different than any other nickel. I was wondering of anyone has knowledge of any alloy tests or foreign coins struck at or around 2000. I know better than to even touch most of my coins I have Seated coins that are most likely ms. A modern nickel that may or may not be special doesn't desire my attention my triple clip State Quarters or collection of ms/proof coins I'm scared to look at. Thank you for the welcome john1 dont have the means to test thickness...micrometer correct? Could it being thin change the sound? 250 nickels dropped only one sounds so deceivingly beautiful. Sorry but seems there has to be an explanation for it correct? Oriole you mentioned internal metal flaws something I have never heard of but will look into thank you everyone for the advise. As always eager for numismatic knowledge.

It's hard to tell from the pics. Is there a cut just inside the rim of the coin? It could be a magician coin if that's what I'm seeing.
