First off I would like to say thank you to all you who help out with all the questions up on here,it is a blessing. I found this Nickel about two years ago , could never figure out why its colored like this, perhaps its just old and worn?

It's likely environmental damage of some sort - may have been buried at some point.

@ss1m, we are glad to help you in whatever way we can. I agree with the frog that your coin has some surface staining. Certainly could come from having been buried for a while, but at this point it is just speculation.

with all of the above. Environmental staining/tarnishing is the most likely cause of it's colour and condition.

The color can be seen as black beauties on over heating planchets, called over annealed planchets. But the question comes to me, why can't these be faked by heating struck coins? So I question any of these found in circulation. Only original rolls would the true sources for these in my own opinion. There are certain years when this happened. Late 1950's and early 1960's.
