photograph: Silver Wartime 5 Cent Piece.
During World War II the nickel metal which until
the war had been the prime alloy component in 5
cent pieces was deemed to be critical to the war
effort. Because nickel was in short supply, the
US Government substituted silver for several years
instead of nickel metal. Wartime Nickels with silver
content always have a large mint-mark (P, D, or
S) stamped above the Monticello.
