First To Use The "P" Mint Mark - Choice Uncirculated Condition!
During World War II, nickel alloys became in short supply. To help make up for the shortage, from 1942-45 our standard "Nickel" was struck in a 35% silver alloy! A total of 11 different "War Nickels" were issued. These coins also have the distinction of being the first to use the "P" (Philadelphia) mint mark. They were also the only Jefferson nickels to use a large mint mark above the dome on the reverse instead of the normal spot to the right of Monticello.
Each of the complete sets offered here are in choice uncirculated condition and come housed in a custom holder.
