It was the composition of the silver coins that changed in 1965, not the nickel, but this modern set follows the date guidelines of the silver issues by beginning in 1965. The dies have been remodeled numerous times since 1965, giving this series a slightly different look (over and over) as the years progress. This set also contains the first nickel with a mintmark on the obverse. Can you remember the year?
