    It's worth a dollar, your coin is an alloy of 56% copper, 35% silver and 9% manganese.

    Welcome to Coin Talk. From the photos you posted it looks like there's a lamination issue on the reverse. I'm not sure if it adds any value to the coin but it makes a nice addition to a collection.

    Ok, thank you. So the blanchet isn't from 1941like in the video. The die scatch extends across most of the reverse. It appears an attempt to infill and fix The scratch first, there are/ letters/numbers that appear quite well where the scratch was infilled. Then one more final stamp was done to complete the wartime nickel.

    As stated normal wartime nickel with probable lamination issue on reverse.

    A Lamination is a planchet flaw.. Not a scratch, not a Die Scratch, not a die issue and not a striking issue. There was no attempt to fix it.
    It's a normal occurrence.

    You have a normal nickel with circulation wear and tear besides the lamination error. No fixing no restamping.

    I see you have a lot to learn. Listen to us and We will teach you.

    Does the lamination increase the value above melt?

    It's a normal war Nickel with a lamination error. The coin is worth a buck for the silver but the lamination error would add a few extra dollars.

    Please avoid any further videos. They will warp your common sense.
