1944 1945 1951 1952 four different 1953 and a 1954

Here's a link to find values. https://www.coinsandcanada.com
Most of these years normally had a chrome plating I believe, to prohibit rust of the steel core. Look for normal plated issue images and missing chrome pictures and compare the obvious difference in appearance,

A fool and his money.....
I believe ICCS will no longer certify these.
Plating technicians with the right equipment can fabricate them quite readily.

@DBM that would explain why every coin on that eBay link is in a CCCS holder.

And it looks like BC Coinmart has CCCS examples coming out their ears, all at more than $1000 a pop.

I am being facetious and thinking that they know someone in the "dechroming" business

If you are hoping to get BC Coinmart to lower the price for you just a little if you were interested in the coin good luck. I have tried in the pass and failed. I just avoid them.

The problem is that if you have a missing chrome nickel, it would be a hard
sell unless it was certified and as DBM stated, Third Party graders will not
certify them anymore. It is too hard to tell the difference between a genuine
coin and one that has had the Chrome plating intentionally removed.

My eyes must be bad because I don't see the difference on these ebay pictures.

The chrome-plated ones (normal) will be bright and shiny, like old kitchen or sink faucets. No chrome ones will be dull iron/steel surface with no shine. Without the chrome plating, the steel core rusted easy, so any you see with a hint of rust MAY be original no-chrome, but there should be 11' pole marks on any cert'd with fully clean surfaced and circulated.

The steel sheets were first plated with nickel, then with chrome, just like old car bumpers.
The true "missing chrome" originals were from stock that had received only the nickel plating.
Coins on struck on bare steel are very dubious as anyone with the right chemicals and precautions can simulate these in their kitchen.
