KEY WORDS - "Circulated War Nickels" !!!!

By  Sandbagger

from somewhere in Maine

5.0

PEOPLE, Stop complaining that your "Circulated 70+ yr old War Nickels" are dirty, worn and don't look like the photograph! Seriously, some of the complaints I read sound like they were written by a 1st grader. I agree, not all of the 160 War Nickels I've purchased look like the ones in the photograph, but a few did! STOP your whining, they are 70 year old CIRCULATED "War Nickels"! That means they've been in circulation, peoples pockets, change jars, cash registers, etc.. They are known as "junk silver coins" and NOT advertised as "Collectible" War Nickels. If your buying these nickels thinking you'll find a nice collectible one, YOUR NOT READING the description. These are great to have for their Silver content, plus it's nice to hold something in your hand that has a bit of our American History attached to it. A great way to diversify your Silver holdings in the event we ever need to "barter" with our Silver when the idiots in Washington collapse our economy! Gold & Silver have been used for millennia between people as a means of currency and these War Nickels are a great way to trade since most of the unknowing population trust the government. Some people may be more willing to trade goods for government Silver coins than Silver bullion so make sure you have a few of these on hand just in case. So what's the worst that can happen if the economy doesn't collapse?, you wait until Silver goes up, sell them for a profit and buy yourself a Maserati... :)

Bought 60 of these nickels to go with the 200 buffalo's in my 1934 Mills Castle Front slot machine. This slot was in use in a private club until after the "Big War". Now it is really authentic. The coins were of average circulation in various conditions......I cleaned em up in detergent in an ultrasonic tank, and yes, even polished some of the faces, now they look just fine in the jack pot windows intermingled with Chief Red Cloud and his food supply.

All DARK coins! Buyer BEWARE

These coins do NOT look anything close to what is pictured. If you want shiny silver I would look elsewhere. These are dark coins. I believe Apmex should picture the ACTUAL condition of the product you will receive.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)
  • Hard to Sell
  • Poor Condition

Good for "silver stacking," less so for collecting

By  90% Silver

In order to meet the $100 minimum for free shipping, I needed to include something else to round off my order. I felt a roll of these war nickels would help to improve my existing holdings at a relatively low premium over silver's spot price. As with other forms of U.S. junk silver, war nickels in general are immediately recognizable to the well-educated, and contain a known amount of silver. With that said, these war nickels should be purchased with an eye towards "silver stacking" only, rather than with an intention to obtain collectible coins suitable for a coin folder or similar method of display. While I did receive an excellent variety of date/ mintmark combinations in the roll I purchased, most of the coins contained within were of fairly low quality. Many were heavily worn, polished, lightly corroded, or exhibited some manner of circulation damage (this last part is, of course, to be expected). My recommendation is to purchase these war nickels only if you are looking for a good silver value. I suggest holding out for in-person purchases if you wish to obtain specific, aesthetically pleasing war nickels for a coin folder or other set.

Not Average Circulation, more like AG (Almost Good)

These coins are very worn. I almost called Apmex to see what I can do to return these. I only ordered about 100.00 worth, so not worth the effort. I won't buy these again. So worn, some dates are almost unreadable unless with a low power microscope. Just nothing like the image they show. I think they should put about 3-4 different images from the best in the bunch to the worst, this way you can get an idea of the best case scenario and worst case scenario. Oh well, better luck on my next purchase.

Condition is as expected for AC coins. Some better, some worse. Some nice examples in various years and each mint. At such a low premium these are always a safe investment for junk silver. I DID however find a spectacular BU 1945-s that made the whole thing feel like Christmas.

Great Junk Silver!!

By  Coltbreath

from Mesa AZ.

5.0

I bought these War nickels because they are a great Junk silver value. I love the fact that these nickels were a slight departure from the normal mint mark scheme. They came as expected slightly dark from years of service, but the dates and mint marks were clearly visible. A great historical coin!!
