About 1946 Nickels
Coin collectors spend a lot of time and energy trying to fill the empty spaces in their collections, especially seeking out Jefferson nickels, the 1946 nickel in particular. Made with 40 percent silver, the value of this coin has fluctuated through the years. Coins like the 1946 P Jefferson Nickel often carry values that exceed one US dollar. The high percentage of silver contributes to most of the value appreciation, but an underlying theme of nostalgia has also placed 1946 nickels in high demand. Many collectors look at coins such as the 1946 D Nickel as a fond remembrance to the end of a bloody war and the advent of an era of unsurpassed prosperity. Since the US mint no longer produces coins from this era, collectors must find sellers willing to part with them. Finding sellers who offer 1946 nickels at auctions and through coin collecting periodicals can be difficult, as they may have slight imperfections that reduce their value. However, on eBay, you can search for reliable sellers who offer 1946 nickels in mint condition.
