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

        I ordered $3 face value of these nickels to try to fill up my book. They are a very inexpensive way to obtain silver, but at a cost of condition. Most were black or really dark, a few were damaged, and a few more were scratched. Another issue was that I didn't get all 11 different war nickels, but i wasn't really expecting to get all of them. Overall however, I am pleased with my purchase, and will probably buy more in the future.

            These are very cool. Still wrapped in a coin roll, these war nickels look very nice. The outer coins look to be in good condition and the price compared to spot price is quite reasonable. I would definitely recommend to others!

                Had to order $2.00 worth to get all the years and mint dates and half those dates are AU or better, a great addition to my collection and hoard.

                    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.
