This one is not a match
When you're looking at the 1943 P alone there is like 70 +/- varties alone RPM's.
As for the the Op's other post there were no proof war nickels struck other than the 42, and 42 P. no other proof nickels till 1950. So no proof like or proof nickels.
However one needs to visit a time where everything had value, especially medal.
Everything was on ration, so it shouldn't be a surprise anyone that dies were used til they exploded,or were worked and reworked then scraped afterwards.
As for the 1944 D lol at 4:07 am before going in to work I must admit wasn't totally awake.
However who's to say that there can't be a new find ? Again after all look at the war year nickels and varities there are why wouldn't a new find be possible?
@Fred Weinberg .
Here's an 1942 P type 2 proof. Struck with the obv. die of an 42 Proof. How do I know? the obv. die has a dot tear drop shaped on Jefferson's collar. see Image , That dot is a die marker for a very rare 1942 type 1 proof nickel variety.
So My thoughts (29,600) type 1 proofs struck ,going to strike another (27,600) type 2's. Can't use a reverse die of a type 1 to strike the type 2 but you can use dies in good shape for the obv. thus....a type 1 obv. and type 2 rev made this nickel.
Just because there are no proofs for a year/mint does not mean a business strike cannot be proof-like Paddy. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other.
I've been collecting nickels for over 50 years, I've never heard or seen a nickel with the term" proof like"...They are either proof or mint state.
