If you're a fan of U.S. coins, you'll love this popular Year Set from 1943. Assembled in a clear, protective holder, it includes some of America's most sought-after coins. Included in this 5-coin set is one of each denomination: Steel Lincoln Head 'wheat' cent, 35% silver wartime Jefferson nickel, Mercury dime, Washington quarter, and Liberty Walking half dollar, with the latter 3 minted in 90% silver!
These coins circulated during the period that, to save precious copper for the war effort, the Treasury Department issued cents in this one-year-only composition. However, the metals used did not circulate well, and 1944 saw the return of the traditional copper cent. These nostalgic Year Sets make ideal gifts for any special occasion.
