      Here's a copper-colored or copper-plated nickel that NGC is
      calling "improperly annealed".

      I thought "improperly" or "poorly annealed" planchets were supposed to
      be brittle or poorly struck (or both), not discolored.

      Nobody really knows where the copper color/plating comes from, so I
      suppose "improperly annealed" is just as much of a guess as "copper
      wash" and "sintered plating". But it just adds to the confusion.
