Someone just asked me why their nickel looked strange and it did not match any other nickel they had. When I looked it was a 2008 nickel with Jefferson's head facing forward while all the other nickels were the old profile portraits. Portrait Jefferson nickels are so common and remained unchanged for so long they tend to go unnoticed.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Cents / United States of America
Metal: 75% copper 25% nickel
Value: $0.15 in Almost Uncirculated (AU-50) this one is less
to know if your nickel has more than face value? Leave a
comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history
