    I like grey colored Jefferson nickels as well, but since nickel is grey, it is rather common. The improperly annealed planchet coins are from the late 50's and are referred to as black beauties. Someone along the way decided that a burnt planchet is a mint error and decided to sell the coins at a premium price in ANACS holders. Needless to say, black coins are not attractive, they are not worth a premium, and I don't own one. Coming from the guy who owns almost everything Jefferson Nickel related, that should tell you something. I even own circulated grey ones. Here ya go!



    BTW, it is impossible to grade your nickel from those photos. They simply don't have enough detail. If I had to guess, I would say MS64-MS66

    Yes but mine has a little copper on the fields,I think it was copper washed ,I know it's hard to notice the copper on the surface but it;s there.

    I rather call it copper washed ,and they are considered errors.

    Copper Wash/Sintered Planchet – Sintered or copper washed planchets are coin blanks left in the annealing furnace for an extended period of time, causing dust from previous coins to embed in the blank planchet making it darker then usual.

    I doubt this nickel was copper washed though.

    Unfortunately this guy has been banned. Same person as another who was banned.

    Regardless, doesn't change the fact of the coin
