    Had to cancel that order. It is not the silver set.

    $.40 cents bought me 4 x junk silver dimes from my bank teller today. very fun. this is the 3rd call from her since she made my acquaintance as a new lead teller at my bank. i have offered finders fees and even chocolates but she refuses not wishing to jeopardize her job. i will figure something out as a return gesture to her - maybe have to just bring a basket of goodies to share between all the tellers at Christmas or something. its cool and kind of fun to see that number pop up on my cell phone occasionally.

    Well worn 1943 "S" nickle received as change. Most common silver coin I still find in change is the 1964 or earlier dimes, even mercury dimes, can't remember finding a silver nickel since I went through nickle rolls as a boy. Judging by wear, this one must have been in circulation since WWII, going through probably thousand of hands before being recognized as more than an nickel...

    I didn't realize that nickels were ever made out of silver, aside from the odd silver proof set. I now see that 1942-1945 nickels were said to have been silver. I knew about steel pennies during the war years. I did not know about silver nickels. Thanks for making me take a look.

    This is no longer posted in the Fed Minutes of January 2008, but still quoted here - https://www.nbcnews.com/id/wbna22592939. The FOMC minutes still quote MR. Reifschneider. as stating the same thing.

    I see a lot of people say silver nickels are 40% or 35%, a few months back I researched this and the composition can range from 7% to 30%, but 18% was most common. I think this would over complicate matters if you were trying to base a coin on silver value.

    I think you will get some contesting feedback here with your statement about the US war nickel silver content. Where did you get this "research" information?

    Everything I understand about the silver composition of those nickels was straight 35% silver, 56% copper, 9% manganese.

    Everything I've seen says the war nickels were all the some composition. Melt value for all production years is computed here: https://www.coinflation.com/coins/19...kel-Value.html
