Hello everybody,

I'll start off by saying I'm not a collector of coins, but I always had a habit of picking out coins that catch my eye when going through change, but I guess in a way that does make me somewhat of a collector LOL...

Anyways, I was counting coins in my change jar from over the years (was finally full & getting too heavy) & when I got to the nickels, this one caught my eye mainly because of how defined it is, then I noticed the year, it didn't make sense. Then when I got it under decent light, it has that copper/bronze-ish tint to it. It's beat up & has 100% been in circulation because I got it back in change from someplace, sometime ago and has been sitting in my coin jar for who knows how long.

I have no idea if it actually is a 1964 Special Strike or just a really old nickel & that tint/discoloration is just a result from age & being in circulation.

- J.

Spender. Lots of these were struck that year. Just a circulated example.

Looks like an ordinary circulated 1964 nickel, worth just face value. Sorry, don't see the appeal.

Thanks, appreciate it! It was just odd to come across & definitely stood out when it was next to other nickels.

Toning appears natural--likely exposed to a mild environmental agent over a period of time. Nice coin, keep it if you like it.

I agree it's a spender.
