Re: 1998 Canadian Nickel Improperly Annealed Planchet

Rick, what is the weight of your coin, and also what is the thickness? I have one of these as well; it weighs 4.64 grams (normal), but it is slightly (10%) thinner than a normal 1998 5 cent piece. It has a copper look to it, not nickle. I feel that it could have missed the nickle plating step, excep...

Anyone care to confirm this as a 1929 high 1 cent?

Thanks.
