In 1942 they made regular nickels in Philly and Denver, but they also made silver nickels in Philly and San Francisco. All the other years all 3 mints made silver nickels and these are designated with a large mint mark over the dome of Monticello on the reverse. They are desirable for the silver content and there are a few rare varieties.
Paul, do you mind if I save this image?
Unfortunately, no... The silver nickels have a large mint mark over the dome of monticello on the reverse.
Nothing like Pauls' (Lehighs') examples. But I did buy some from him a few years ago, because I wanted a pristine example of a 'war years' coin/5 cent piece looked like in mint state....
@Lehigh96 , nice photo!
The silver 1942 Philly has a large P over the dome and a different patina.
