1942-P 5¢ Jefferson Wartime Nickel NGC MS67
This 1942 P Jefferson Nickel has almost proof like appearance to it. It has a very solid strike on the obverse and reverse but does not have clean enough steps to get a FS. Certification number 1860595-011. The 35 % silver content in wartime nickels makes them susceptible to toning. Some of it is very nice and enhances the appearance of the coins but other times it does not. Specimens that are completely free of toning are especially sought after. The wartime nickels are more abundant in premium conditions but they are also highly sought after by a large pool of collectors.
