    Does the look of the mint mark on this 1942d change its face value?

    It doesn't IMO but because it is a 42 it's worth more then face value any way silver (war time nickel). JMO

    the mint mark needs to be above the Monticello for it to have silver content.

    I knew that the 1942 with an S mint mark on the right side was extremely rare. In fact, there’s only been one found. It recently sold in an auction for 125k. I didn’t know about the mintage numbers on the Philadelphia strike. I thought this mint mark looked like a d over d. Or a d over s. Either combo would be cool. It’s think and unlike a normal mint mark.

    This is worth a nickel.
    It would be worth about a dime, but it is so beat up there's no market for it.
    Many of the "older" Jeffersons 1950's non key dates are really only worth face value.
    The 1942-D does have a little value (13 million minted) but this example is so trashed, it's basically just a nickel.
    I can't tell about a possible RPM because there is just so much wear.
    Perhaps more of a close up on the MM.

    Definitely a G4 ballpark, hard to see the MM, need a close up. It would be neat if it were d over s, but the wear state would limit the value. Everything is flat...Spark

    It can't be D over S. 1942.

    Yes, I looked up the mintages...San Francisco never minted any regular nickels so there is no way for any except fakes to exist to see a d over s.

    The other oddity for 1942 was there were no 1942-D Silver nickels minted...P and S but no D. Found the mintage info at: jeffersonnickel.org

    Thanks for your info...Spark
