The 3 over 2 variety of the 1943 Philadelphia nickel is the most valuable of the eleven issues of the Wartime Alloy Jeffersons. The coin brings anywhere from $50 to about $500 depending on condition (grade). It is easier to sell if you have papers of authenticity or have it encapsulated. You can have the coin authenticated and graded by PCGS or NGC.
