Black Beauty 1949 Nickel

#1 Unread post by Aaugust14 » Wed Mar 18, 2020 2:11 pm

I was hoping to get some advice on this nickel I have been hanging onto. The color is true and is not painted. The only information for Black Beauty nickels is for the years 1958/1959...I have added a photo comparison of a 1946 nickel as I do not have another 1949.

Unless a nickel is incirculated it's going to be toning and not significant.
