          Comments about $1 Face Value 35% Silver War Nickels:

          I enjoy collecting US silver coins, so these were a must have for me. The premiums are also lower on these nickels than on 90% silver US coins. I would recommend, however, that you unwrap and confirm that the coins have the proper mint mark (above Montecito) and the rolls contain the full 20 coins. I've purchased about a dozen of these one dollar rolls, with one roll a coin short, and another with a non-silver 1942 (both types were minted that year).

              Got a nice tightly rolled roll of nickels. A decent assortment of dates from all years except 1942 which is probably to be expected. Condition was good overall only one or two were very worn, all dates readable. Filled some album spots.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Very nicely packed in foam and inside two different boxes. Might be the best shipped coin package I've ever recieved.

                              I usually try to stay with 40% silver as my budget but you can beat the low price of War Nickels. I just wish Congress would have made them 50% copper/50% silver. One of my coins was "Cleaned" while the other 19 are the typical black and coal colored nickels. Still the price and quanity can't be beat.

                                        Excellent value coins...purchased at "spot" price. Not the prettiest quality, but purchased as barter and silver content value only.
