Why buy this 4-Piece 1942-1945 Jefferson War Nickel Set?

Early in America's involvement in World War II, nickel was deemed to be a strategically important metal for the war effort. Accordingly, the US Mint stopped using nickel in the coins. Instead, they switched to .350 fine silver. A large size mint mark was struck onto these nickels to distinguish them from those struck with the traditional cupro-nickel. Mint marks included "D" for Denver, "S" for San Francisco, and "P" for Philadelphia. Jefferson Nickels struck in Philadelphia were the first coins on which the "P" mint mark ever appeared. All four coins in this set remain in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Classic President Thomas Jefferson Design by Felix Schlag

All four of these nickels share the same designs. The obverse bears Felix Schlag's left-side portrait of President Thomas Jefferson. To the left is the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and to the right is the word "LIBERTY" along with the coin's date.

Schlag's Monticello design features on the reverse. "MONTICELLO" is inscribed below to identify Jefferson's famous Virginia home. Other inscriptions on this face include "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one), "FIVE CENTS," and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."
