    Re: Silver and nickel ???

    Last year for 90% silver was 1964. Half dollars were 40% from 65-70. Nickels are still made of nickel.

    Re: Silver and nickel ???

    Is your question about nickels "which years had silver content?" - then the answer is 1942-45 and they have the large P/D/S mintmark over the dome on the reverse.

    And, the Mint still makes silver coins in proof sets - S mintmark - and they sometimes get loose in the wild.

    It is just silly when people ask questions on a forum that can be found with a quick Google search.
    Regardless, I did post rashly. My apologies.
