Wondering if this could be a 1943 over 42 P Jefferson nickel? Thanks for any help identifying it. It is pretty worn, but I do see something with the 3.

I honestly just about stuck it with my other silver War Nickels, but decided out of curiosity to check my Red Book on the mintage quantity and saw the listing for the 1943/2 P and thought I better check a little closer! Glad I did!

It's a "good" one. Might grade G4 details too with scratch.
Close call with obverse lettering worn to rim but you have a 3 over 2 there.
Amazing it was out there that long undetected. Maybe a "lowball" contender, but I don't understand lowball collectors.
My favorite album!

Thanks TNG- I am new to CRH and coin collecting as a whole. Not sure what a "lowball" contender or collector means. I thought it was just a fun find to have in my newbie collection.

There are people who collect coins in the most worn grades and have them professionally graded.
They assemble complete sets of that coin seies in the lowest possible conditions and total the grades.
The complete opposite of the top graded sets. They are called "Registry Sets".
Here are two links for an example of what I am talking about.
V Nickels highest ranked complete basic set
https://www.PCGS.com/setregistry/ni...llery/189059
V Nickels lowest ranked complete basic "Lowball" set
https://www.PCGS.com/setregistry/lo...allery/46669

Don't put too much thought into this as a beginner, I just wanted to explain it a bit better. There is some prestige being the owner of a lowball set and I find it kind of an odd thing.

Incidentally, I looked up the lowest PCGS 1943/2 Jefferson and they have 3 graded at G-6. See about halfway down this page:
https://www.PCGS.com/pop/detail/jef...=1&p=MS&pn=1

If it weren't for that scratch, I think you might have one that would beat those at maybe G4 or even AG3 BUT the scratch might make it non gradable.

Just think, if you had the lowest straight graded 1943/2 Jefferson.
Still, A NEAT and FUN coin, Congrats
My favorite album!

In order to be a lowball contender the coin has to be able to straight grade at the TPG. The OP coin appears to have som rim damage on the obv and couple of rim bumps. It is questionable whether it would straight grade.
