Stack's Bowers Auction March 2020 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Mar-2020 Rainbow Toned 1943-D Wartime Jefferson Nickel 1943-D Jefferson Nickel. MS-67+ FS (PCGS). This is a simply beautiful 1943-D Jefferson nickel. Shades of iridescent golden-orange, salmon pink, sea green and powder blue provide outstanding visual appeal. Early in World War II, nickel's role as a strategic metal in the war effort meant that an alternative for coinage needed to be found. After several experiments, the Mint came up with a seemingly odd alloy of 56% copper, 35% silver, and 9% manganese that would work as it would have minimal impact on existing vending machines and turnstiles. Here is a truly exceptional Superb Gem notable both for its quality and its incredible toning. Estimate: $100 - $300. PCGS Population: 100; 7 finer in this category (all MS-68 FS). PCGS# 84020.
