    They made silver nickels during World War II. The blue it is sitting on is a Whitman coin folder that also labels it as silver.

    1942? Better hang on to that one! I'm not now but I used to be a penny collector back when I was a tot (thanks dad :)

    Oh BTW wanted to talk to you about that comment you made about a month ago on my gum machine... THANK YOU!!! :)
    You know I love the show American Pickers but when Frank posted that comment "you got ripped off pal" it kinda shattered me. Thank you for coming back and defending me with " dont worry about that comment. its worth over $50" ----thank you soooooo much.
    (Frank Fritz from AMerican pickers on History channel deleted that comment it looks like) :)

    No problem! That wasnt THE Frank..just some poser that didnt know anything and felt like being a jerk...he went around posting negative comments on a lot of posts. He was deleted by the admin and probably blocked.

    I was gathering up my random change just now that had accumulated for who knows how long and I spotted the reverse of a wheat penny. 1938! Always check your change people!
