    I recently found a 1944 Jeff Nickel w/o a mint mark in an extensive collection I purchased. In researching it, I discovered it is probably a Henning counterfeit. Condition is VG. Can anyone tell me what the value might be?

    I bought one many years ago for $1. There are several dates, but the famous one is the 1944 with no mint mark above Monticello. This has been listed as a footnote "The Red Book" for many years.

    Note small line above Monticello which is tell tale die break.

    When Henning was caught, it was his second time as a counterfeiter. He had a counterfeit $5 bill on the drawing board when they nabbed him.
