1974 Jefferson Nickel: Sintered?

Would this qualify as sintered (blackie)? Or, just environmental?

I'm not sure.
I never noticed it on the sintered before but when I zoomed in there were hues of green and purple on both. Mark's were a little darker but nice looking color on both. Interesting because I was leaning towards Marks looking like it had slight circulation wear and was leaning towards not sintered. But now, ....... hmmmmm.

Honestly it could be but just circulated. No reason for the dark color otherwise. IMO

I'm okay with environmental/circulated.
It was just really dark and evenly "coated" except high points.

Usually nickels turn reddish with environmental damage.
