Welcome!

Please post photos of both coins and include front and back. Additionally, it is best if you put each coin in a separate thread so the conversation doesn't become confusing.

On the 1989 penny's reverse, the FG is exhibiting "Die Trails".
On the 1989 penny's obverse, you are showing us mechanical doubling.

While interesting, neither add value.

The blackened nickel is not rare, but a type of planchet error that occurs prior to the coin being struck. Unfortunately, it could also be an artificially toned coin, or have spent some time in the ground. This one would like require inspection in hand to be able to determine the difference. But, even if a sintered (or improperly annealed) coin, it would again not add much value.

Aren't die trails in relief (raised)?
The lines coming off the NE corners of FG appear to be incuse (recessed).
Same anomaly on the bottom right corner of the building.
Is this the same incuse issue affecting the date?
