Silver nikels


Recommended Posts

As stated above, only the 1942-1945 ones due to a nickel(the metal) shortage during WWII. All others are an alloy of 75% copper and 25% Nickel. The silver content of 1942-1945 nickels I believe is 35% but due to manganese they aren't popular to melt down so they aren't a heavily sought after coin for their silver content. I personally love silver and have a whole big bunch of them. And if the price of silver went nuts then these coins would follow suit, manganese or not. But that's metal speculation and not numismatics so I'll digress from here :ninja:
