    Good question....your guess is as good as mine....I don't think it matters much on age. It's just wasn't struck as a Nickel....Has same metal content though.....
  3. VikingFan82 VikingFan82, 7 years ago
    If it's war time it could have more silver content...of course there is only one way to find out :P

    i dnt think they ever made silver nickels , have you ever heard the saying "it isnt worth a nickel" well this originates in the late 19th early 20th century because nickels were never made of a precious metal.....jus nickel

    During WWII nickels were made of 56% copper, 35% silver and 9% manganese.

    I have a 1937 lincoln cent . the front was struck in the normal way. However the reverse is blank, There is no signs it was shaved. It is perfectly flat.
