1942 P Jefferson Nickel … Type 1 or Type 2

If you are wondering what the difference is between a Type 1 and Type 2, 1942 P Jefferson Nickel and how to tell the difference in them.  Check the back (reverse) of the nickel and if there is a large P above the dome of the Jefferson Memorial then it is a “1942 P Jefferson Nickel Type 2”.  If there is no mintmark on the coin at all it is a Type 1 “1942 P Jefferson Nickel Type 1”.  The difference is in the composite metals in the coin that was changed during the U.S. involvement in World War 2.  The Type 2 contains approx. 35% Silver to replace Nickel because Nickel was used to make weapons and armor during the WW2.  Hope this helps and thank you for reading this and any of my guides.[auction-affiliate tool=”lister”]
