Friends,

Looking through bunch of bank rolled nickels, I came across a cache of nickels, most of them are war time nickels. Please take a look at the attached 1944P Wartime nickel and let me know your thoughts as to "error or damage"

Thanks
Topeka

@TG, I assume that you are talking about the region between LIBERTY and the date. If so, this looks to be a lam. For whatever reason (wartime, different alloy, etc.), these seem to be relatively common on these coins.

Edit, ok I just noticed your green arrows, so yes both regions look like laminations to me.

with Spence and, wow, four rolls of War Nickels! The starting value for them is about $1 each, even in worn condition.

Lamination failure, caused by pre strike planchet defect.
Small pieces of the coin have fallen off, most probably after the coin was issued into circulation.

@ OP , If you found 4 rolls of bank wrapped wartime Nickels then there could be a lot more at the bank you got them from . The distributer takes random coins from the hopper ,wraps them ,then ships to bank . I would have bought all of those rolls of Nickels that that bank had very soon after the discovery .
I see a big one on the horizon . Stay tuned !
