I had the opportunity to upgrade my proof war nickel from a 65 to a 67.

Very nice. Did it get a FS designation?
It’s a proof. All proof Jefferson nickels have full steps.
Sorry, Didn't notice the title.
A proof war nickel? Dang, that's amazing, I don't think I've ever seen a proof war nickel! Sweet coin!
Sweet coin John definitely a huge upgrade....to your proof set of war nickels.
Just another post that assures the membership here that you know nothing of what you speak!
Are you kidding me? A proof Jefferson 42 P upgrade from a 65 to a 67?
Is not a flip of a coin......
Very nice example!
I have two more raw around here some place but my Pf. 66 I cherry picked it an WDDR-003 The large die gouge [dot ] on Jeffersons collar below his hair line.
Check yours there are quite a few varieties known....on the war nickel series.
I actually checked it last night, and didn't see anything other than notched serifs on the first T and the S in TRUST, which seem to be in the master die.
Ok well here's where mine gets interesting the ddr I refered to is actually on a type l not type 2 . The war nickels produced a lot of varieties.the 43 P alone has 72 rpm,rpd .Any way I was waiting for someone to call me on the wddr 003 post because it isn't.
As the wddr 003 was on style 1 and this being types 2 can only mean....One of the type 1 obvs. Was used to mint type 2 Jefferson nickel 1942 P proof.
I don't know if you call it a mule... but the obv. Is the wddr 003 type 1 with all markings to substantiate the coin. The rev. Type 2 P over dome.
I need to send this one in....
Check the C in America....is it split?
My thumbs-up was meant as a compliment to messydesk, not a flip of a coin! I wouldn't have "liked" his thread if I did! Do yourself a big favor troll boy, if you don't like my posts don't comment on them! Just move on to your next newbie victim!
That is one sharp looking coin.
You put it out there ......it's fair game.......
Just peeked at my Red Book.
The 42-P had the only proof in the War Nickels.
I never knew that.
For 42 Proofs type 1 and type 2 but yes correct ......the only proof durring the war years.
Mintage 29,600 l & 27,600 type ll .
Here is the 42 two Jefferson proofs variety l & variety 'll both of these are from my raw Jefferson sets.
No more proof strikes until 1950....
@messydesk Nice pick up. Shows well.
