Hey so in collecting coins and such I just got started by the way I have a nickel that is made of copper I thought maybe it was made of gold but it's magnetic. I don't really have the money to get it graded so I'm posting it to macari and I'm pretty much just looking for a ballpark to put it in

PLEASE DON'T. It is merely an environmentally damaged nickel, PERIOD! It's worth 5 cents.

The truth is if it is ACCEPTED by a store merchant, a vending machine or any person who doesn't reject it on grounds of its  appearance, then it may be worth 5 cents.  I have a quarter-dollar that is its genetic twin. I had no takers. I sent a dollar bill that had gone through the wash & dry cycle rendering its still recognizable appearance as bleached linen, directly to the BEP which declared it to be counterfeit and confiscated it. You win some, you lose some.

It appears to be your typical environmentally damaged coppernickel coin, but I an intrigued by your comment that it is magnetic.  Coppernickel alloy nickels shouldn't be magnetic.  Are you sure it is?

I agree with the others. Ive dug them out of the ground while metal detecting and they would look like that. Its do to exposure of enviromental conditions.
