That's intriguing, but it's hard to say from the pics. Proof nickels can develop some interesting toning, commonly including shades of blue, so I have always been hesitant to label any proofs as "black beauties."

First it is a proof nickel , not a mint set nickel.
Second it is a toned nickel , which by the way
is very common .
Never did get all this black beauty stuff , simply
toned coins from a minor annealing problem .
Third never seen anyone in my 40 plus years
ever really pay up for one .

I would really like to see that coin out of it's wrapper . By the way you are describing it it sure looks and sounds like a Black Beauty . Although I've never seen a 1963 BB . I've seen rolls of 1959-P and heard of a couple of other Philly dates .

Leaving these in the mint cellos can turn the coin different colors:


Some are annealed to long and turn dark in color:

These are MS-examples, all found in a roll.
