Out of the 119,150,000 1944-P Jefferson Nickels that were struck, NGC has only graded a miniscule 803 of them in Mint State 67 condition. Starting in 1942, Jefferson Nickels were struck from a silver alloy, this composition only lasted until 1945. This 1944-P silver wartime Jefferson Nickel exhibits a vibrant patina of iridescent toning. The obverse showcases tones of sky blue, emerald, sunset orange, rose pink, and amber. Flip it over and there is a steady patina of gentle gold that encompasses the entire reverse. Interspersed along the rim of the reverse are also touches of rose pink.
