Ron Guth: The 1943-P Nickel is one of the most common of the War-Time "Silver" Nickels.  Gem examples abound, with a large population at the MS-66 level, and with a substantial percentage showing Full Steps.  Be sure to look for the 1943/2 Overdate or the 1943 Doubled Die Obverse, which can sometimes be found unattributed.
