I`ve had this coin for some time in my silver stack, and never really examined it until this morning. I got this a while ago at a coin show for around 2-4 dollars. I know Laminations are common on the War Nickels but this one is in such good shape and has a nice tone to it. It almost makes me feel like it`s been cleaned but I don't see any obvious signs of harsh cleaning. The lamination runs from the rim near the date to Jefferson`s bust. Thanks for looking!

I love findings these things. The silver Jeffs for some reason is my favorite series of coins. Always fun finding a lam!

Looks a lot larger than you think. It is not just the area on the rim, but the 43 is showing ghost images on the digit and the lamination continues over 1/2 the way across the lower bust area.
