The "power" of marketing or suggestion is what probably sold this coin in the first place. I don't think most numismatic collectors are very interested in colorized coins. (Almost like post mint damage.) It is no longer uncirculated (if it ever was) and probably still worth a nickel.

It's worth a nickel but some collector might pay a couple dollars.
