I found a 1947 nickel in pocket change and noticed that when I dropped it on the table or flicked it in the air it didn't make a ringing noise like the rest of the nickels it had more of a thud noise to it. it's in amazing condition and weighs exactly 5 grams . anyone have any idea what I have stumbled upon? I'll post up a video and pictures later

Yes, given the images posted it appears to be a common, circulated '47 nickel.

As stated 5 grams is normal and so is the coin.

any breaks in the metal along the edges? those would dampen the ring noise

Yes it looks normal the weight is correct.now how do I post a video so you guys can hear the noise it makes when I flick it in the air? And there is no break on the edges And I'll flick a nickel with breaks on the edges to show that even if that was the case it would still make a ringing noise. this nickel just makes a thud noise when my thumb hits it no ringing. even a zinc penny makes a slight quick ringing noise

Sound test is nothing. I remember a You Tube video of a young guy (stupid on allegation and presentations) who state sound test. This it is not a test for coins. Your coin was struck in Phil in '47 and on that year Philadelphia do not struck foreign coins..

Several things can cause a coin to not ring, planchet void, lamination problem, even the way you check it. That is why it is not really any kind of "test", it could be a reason to look at a coin closer, but really proves nothing.

I see a normal circulated 1947 Philly minted Jefferson nickel.

Some coins are ' dumb', when it comes to having a ping tone.
The usual reason for this is an internal lamination, which is not visible on the surface.

This coin has a genuine and a quite (otherwise) normal planchet.

A spender, unfortunately.

No videos here, sorry. As mentioned, you have a normal nickel, nothing special, sorry.
ça va bien aller
