|WWII Silver Nickel Year Set |
With World War II in full swing, most natural resources were reserved for the war effort and, included on that list, was nickel, a key ingredient of the U.S. 5-cent piece. To account for the sudden loss in material, the U.S. Mint resorted to striking the nickel in a new alley that included 35% silver for coins struck from 1942 to 1945. Now, you can own a piece of WWII history with this set of 4 U.S. silver nickels that arrive in a handsome presentation folder. Circulated condition.
