1953 5 Cents Thank you for your help, I am a newbie to this website and coin collecting. Can anyone tell me if thry think this is a 1953 Nickel-Near-No Shoulder Fold? What I really need help with is why this coin weighs only 4.24g? I hope the pictures help. I will try to get better pictures.
The 1953 nickels are a different weight than one let's say, 1955, because they used chrome plated steel to mint nickels from 1951-1954. This is also true with 1944-1945. They used nickel for another purpose.
