Product description
Product Information
The 1942 US Jefferson nickel is considered a wartime coin and is made of mostly copper, but it also includes 35 percent silver and 9 percent manganese. The combination of these three metals was necessary to meet the standard size and weight requirements set by the US Mint. This copper coin depicts President Thomas Jefferson on the obverse side, facing to the left. Also included on the obverse side of this 1942 five-cent piece are the words "In God We Trust," "Liberty," and the year 1943. The reverse side of this copper coin depicts the Monticello. The wording on the back of this silver coin includes the words "Monticello," "E Pluribus Unum," "United States of America," and "five cents." The mint mark on this US Jefferson nickel is also located on the back. This 1942 five-cent piece has a diameter of 21.2 mm and a weight of 5 g (0.17 oz). Felix Schlag designed this US Jefferson nickel, which also features a plain edge.

Beautiful warnick proof

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is the first and only proof silver war nickel made. It has full steps, which is somewhat rare in wartime nickel production, and makes a fine type coin for wartime nickels.

What can I say, except, I LOVE IT! Just the Nickel that I needed to fill in a spot in my Nickel Collection. I have not received it yet, but I am happy so far with the price I paid. I will write a further review on the coin, when I get it. Until then, Happy Bidding (FOR ME)!! GB

Great product

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nickel was part of a set of wartime nickels. It was the easiest way to buy a complete set of circulated nickels at a reasonable price
