    Nice lamination but times were tougher back then and a lot of coins were not saved.

    In 1940, that nickel could buy you a meal, so saving one probably wasn't a consideration.

    My Mother-In-Law owned and operated a restaurant during WW II while her husband was in the South Pacific. Meals were real cheap but every penny was squeezed to get all out of it.
