1944-D Wartime Silver Nickel

Of the eleven wartime nickels this is one of the more scarce dates. Just over 32 million were minted compared to the 100+ million made of the Philadelphia nickel. It still does not carry much of a premium over metal value.

This coin is tarnished and deeply scratched but it still has over $1.00 worth of silver in it. Although silver is at a relative low point, less than $20.00 per ounce, it still is a precious metal. I understand this coin is not that attractive but no need to dump it since it will always carry a small premium. Granted if that person kept it I would not have found it so it is a mixed feeling.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Cents / United States of America
Year: 1944-D
Mintage: 32,309,000
Metal: 56% copper, 35% silver, and 9% manganese
Value: $1.25 in F-12
