Today we stick with 5 cents again. The history of the war time nickels is an interesting one but there has been some doubt thrown into the mix.

The basic story was that nickel was a critical war metal needed, but removing it from 5 cents really would haven't given much back to the war effort. The change in nickel alloy may have saved as much as 827,163 pounds of nickel but that amount was actually insignificant since 300 million pounds of nickel were produced annually during World War II.

I read several articles and speculation that the real reason for the change in composition was probably to boost the morale of American citizens by showing the Mint was doing its part in the war effort by doing without nickel.

Never the less, the War Nickels when in MS, look pretty nice.

Continuing with the 50 cents we get a Ben, this is honestly my least favorite US coin, but I needed one for the type set.

Lol. Give Ben a little love.

He's not all that bad.

Nice additions!

I don't mind ugly Ben's! Sure it's pretty low on the list of attractive coinage, but I can appreciate them. Someday I'll build a set and send you every single pic/update along the way HF!
