During WWII, nickel needed for the war effort. During this period from 1942-1945, nickel was removed from our nickels and they were made from an alloy of copper (56%), silver (35%) and manganese (9%). A large mint mark was placed on the reverse to signify the metal change.The above war nickel is toned.

We need a good war nickel portrait to update this post in the Virtual Museum. Anyone have one they'd like to donate?
