I have this 1942 nickel without mint mark. It look like silver. Is it worth anything?

No mm means it was minted in Philadelphia with nearly 50 million being struck.
Yours is made from a copper/ nickel alloy, not silver. Not much value over face.

To CCF , In that condition it's worth about 15 to a new collector .

Weight should be around 5 grams whether it's the usual composition or the 35% silver "War" nickel. As you can see, this one has lost roughly 5% of its mass (about 1/4 gram) due to wear and tear. If it were silver, there would be a large mintmark above the dome on the reverse; sadly, this nickel has none.

Yours is a well worn common date nickel - as suggested above worth face value.

Oh that I was where I would be,

Here I am where I must be,

In 1942, there were two types of nickels. The type 1 was made of the typical copper nickel alloy, while the type 2 used a silver alloy. The type 2 versions carried large mint marks over the dome of Monticello to signify the change in composition.
