Running short of this once lowly metal. The mint stopped using nickel and switched to silver.
The new War Nickels had a large P mint mark over the Monticello on the back. In 1942, they struck 2 different mint sets, one set with the nickel coin and the other set had 2 different nickels, one made of nickel.
And the other was made of silver which was the RARE Silver Nickel. Each set had a penny, silver dime, silver quarter, silver half dollar.
