1964 and before are 90% silver with dimes-quarters-half-dollars. 1965-66-67-68-69-70 halves are 40%,also 3¢ silvers.Hope that helps you some
It's also worth mentioning that Jefferson nickels
1943-1945 (and some 1942) are 35% silver. In my experience, these are more likely to be found than the pre-1964 dimes and quarters, because they don't look as different. They are VERY easy to spot because all of them have a large mint mark (P, D or S) above the dome of Monticello, and no other nickels do.
Happy hunting, and let us know how it goes!
