JEFFERSON NICKEL 1938 TO DATE:
The following was taken from the 2010 "Official Red Book Guide of United States Coins, by Whitman Publishing" considered to be the "Bible" of U.S. coins.This nickel was originally designed by Felix Schlag, who won an award of $1,000 in a competition with some 390 artists. His design established the definite public approval of portrait and pictorial themes rather than symbolic devices on our coinage.
On October 8, 1942, the wartime five-cent piece composed of copper (56%), silver (35%) and manganese (9%) was introduced to eliminate nickel, a critical war material. A larger mintmark was placed above the dome of Monticello. The letter P (Philadelphia) was used for the first time, indicating the change of alloy.
Composition: 1938-1942, 1946 to date: weight 5 grams, .750 copper, .250 nickel, 1942-1945: .560 copper, .350 silver, .090 manganese, with net weight .05626 oz. pure silver. Mints: Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco
