Hi folks, I have been studying this 1946 nickel, and would sure appreciate any feedback. I am seeing some markers on this coin, (From your forum) and the dull, rough surface seems like it could be a Henning nickel. any feedback would be much appreciated Thank you!

I don't think it is. I'm not seeing the loop on the R in "pluribus".

Even without the looped R, it doesn't seem to have the softness in detail of the devices that you would expect with a Henning.

This is struck too strong to be a Henning Nickel:

I don't think there were any Henning nickels with a mint mark.

TNG, I had thought the same thing. Isn't that another key identifier?

IsThisAnything, We had a friend on here on CCF who sadly passed away named pyrbob. I saw his henning collection when he came to our local coin club show. I think my jaw is still on that floor.
Go to this page https://www.coincommunity.com/forum...p?mode=DoIt' and put henning in the search for, and member pyrbob in the by member box.
You find a lot of topics to read about this subject of Henning Nickels.

I don't know if this is any help? https://medium.com/collectibles-his...d19fecdb2d99 A nice short article.

1939, 1944, 1946, 1947 and 1953 and maybe another.

From others, if I want to find one of these, the "R" is the easiest ID. But now we have a counterfeit/counterfeit?

An interesting and amusing tale. Now instead of tossing those bad strikes and worn out Jeffersons, into the piggy bank to take to the coin sorter... I'm going to have to look at them? Poor strikes and soft.

Does anyone have an example image of the raised dots 'pimples' inside the "M" of "UNUM" I searched a bit and didn't see one.

This does make me wonder why someone would spend the time making six dies and buying blanks, when they probably cost as much to make as a real Nickel. Then the other part. Someone talented enough (if that's the word) to go through all that trouble, didn't know that 1944 no mint mark was going to attract attention?

TNG, I'm sorry for your loss.

Thank you! I'll go look that up so I can read more about these. I know they are counterfeits, but I like the story with them and I think they're really cool.

Not a Henning Nickel. None of LeRoy Henning's dies had mint marks. He got caught when he exchanged a bunch of 1944 nickels at a bank that didn't have mint marks. All 1944 nickels had mint marks (P, D, or S) above the dome.

Even without it being a Henning, I'd still hang onto it. I like 1940s nickels. A lot of stories in them.

Here's an article about Henning and his counterfeits from 'Weird New Jersey,' a magazine of the strange stuff that goes on here. https://www.courierpostonline.com/s...it/26070351/
