Item Number - :2393497
The demand of metals in World War II  produced many shortages of materials, including nickel. As a result, in late 1942, the U.S. Gov’t made nickels out of a new composition: 56%  copper, 35% silver and 9% manganese. 

They feature the largest mintmark on any U.S. coin,  located above Monticello’s dome on the reverse. “Wartime silver” nickels minted  in Philadelphia are also the only U.S. coins minted prior to 1979 to bear a “P”  mintmark. This 11-pc set includes every date and mintmark that was issued: Philadelphia, Denver and San  Francisco. Each coin is in Fine or better condition.  Comes packaged in a deluxe display frame.
