Got a 1942 Nickel out of a coinstar reject tray. At first I thought maybe it was a Type 2 silver, but does not have the characteristic large mintmark, just a no mintmark Philly like a Type 1. But I thought, why would it kick out of coinstar and into the reject tray. Are there any documented 1942 philly silver nickels without the large P mintmark? It does not have the look and feel of a war nickel...maybe a Henning? I would not have given this a 2nd thought if I didn't find it in a reject tray.

Probably kicked for no reason, maybe it was stuck to another coin that dislodged. I get clad coins in perfect condition and weight that get kicked.

@jb, from cointrackers:

Additional Info: This is a strange year in that there coins with no P minted and coins with P minted. The coins without the P have no silver content.

Well it would surprise me if the mint messed up their new alloy and included some percentage of silver in the non-silver coins, but I suppose stranger things have happened. The staining on your coin might be environmental/chemical exposure or could be from incomplete mixing of the alloy that allows for preferential toning as it ages.

It is not a Henning nickel (it's in too good a shape, for one).

As far as Coinstar, coins are rejected all the time for no recognizable reason. It doesn't prove anything.

The streaks you see may be due to an improper mixture of metals within the coin's alloy. Nickels have been, and are, made of an alloy and that mixture can fluctuate based on quality control. There is an identical phenomenon with cents called a "woodie."

It produces a similar streaked appearance.

The silver and non-silver nickels all weigh 5 grams, so not sure that is going to tell us anything.
