We’re offering silver war nickels at melt value for this week’s deal of the week! What many individuals don’t realize is that the U.S. Mint produced nickels with 35% silver from 1942 – 1945, as copper was needed for ammunition during WW II. This composition reverted back to 75% copper/25% nickel following the end of the war. It’s important to note that not all 1942 nickels are composed of 35% silver; only those that contain a “mint mark” above the Monticello on the reverse side of the coin. Possible mint marks include “P,” “D,” and “S,” which identify the mint at which the coins were produced. “P” minted coins were minted at the Philadelphia Mint, “D” minted coins were minted at the Denver Mint and “S” minted coins were produced at the San Francisco Mint.
As always, we have a limited supply of these coins, and once they’re gone, they’re gone. If you’re interested in investing in silver in one of the lowest cost forms available, contact us today at 404-236-9744 to reserve your silver nickels while supplies last. We look forward to hearing from you and earning your business!
