Pre-1965 35% Silver coins, sometimes referred to as junk Silver or scrap Silver, are a great way to start your Silver investments. These Silver coins were pulled from circulation with the introduction of copper/nickel clad coins and the rising demand of Silver. The public saved them for their 35% Silver content as a rainy day fund they can fall back on.

The nickels are shiny and attractive. They came in a great looking cardboard case labeled wartime silver nickels that really looks great with the coins.

The picture shows a nice, attractive plastic CASE. And the description states it comes in a any variety of CASES. However, mine arrived NOT in a case but a plastic sleeve. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE. If you buy this be prepared to make other arrangements to attractively display these nice coins.
