    Well a 1943 cent on a copper planchet is a million bucks so a 1943 nickel on a copper planchet would be at the least ten million bucks! Nice find

    Nickels are already 75% copper.
    Its an alloy.
    We call them nickels for their nickel flavor.

    Where are the pictures and what is a cooper planchet?

    It's a war nickel which is why it looks different to you.

    It's from a barrel hoop! After they make the Jack Daniels barbeque chips from the used barrel staves, they have all these hoops left

    I probably should have explained for those who don't know, that a "cooper" is a barrel maker; "cooperage" is the art of making a barrel. :happy:
