    1940 Nickle has some collector value, most cases under a dollar.

    Worth more than 5 cents, just think for a moment. This was being circulated one year before pearl harbor. It has historical value, not just silver value.

    No silver in it but I agree about the historical value, I don't even think about the monetary value of my coins.

    I was circulating before Pearl Harbor so I, too, must have historical value.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could put a coin under a microscope and somehow extract it's DNA as to who touched it, & where it has been. Somewhat like the red stamp on bills of : "Where's George"?

    Yes, I guess you can say it has historical value, but that's all. No silver.

    Wow, I thought they contained silver. I guess that was only quarters and dimes...
