Thanks! Those 46's seem to be struck weaker the most of the other hennings, and I've only seen two blurry and compressed pictures of em.

That's what I was thinking as well but the looped-R was a great giveaway for me to notice it.. the reverse matches my 47 really good but the looped T's don't have much differences between the ones I have

JC Stevens if you need an image of the 46 feel free to use mine if you'd like. It's the looped R type and is over weight at 5.25 grams.

Can you email me some better images for the site.

The other big diagnostic on the reverse with the looped r, is a void right above the N in CENTS. Not as noticeable, but still always there.

I spent the weekend searching through all my rolls of nickels, weighing them and closely observing them with no luck. I searched the net and read dozens of articles to the point of frying my brain and eyes. I did come across a 1954 example on the web which had the looped R AND the die crack (later die state) from dome to rim just like some 1939 and 1944 coins. This could possibly be the missing 6th die. I went back in my computer history to try and find it but I had gone through so many links that I couldn't find it again. I should have bookmarked it.

Apparently he started making the nickels in 53, so he probably wouldn't have made another obverse die months later. Still interested in it though

JohnH4444 I went through my henning collection to check and see that all my looped R coins had the scar marking above the letter N in cents just to double check. Every single one of them had the marking on them... I'll have to ad that note to the list of diagnostics I've gathered over the years. Thanks for the knowledge
