John L. asks: Do you have any information on 1946 Silver planchet Nickel or transitional error nickel that struck on silver war nickel planchet? It would be something like the the 1943 copper cent. Any information would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.
There are 1946 nickels struck in error on obsolete wartime silver blanks. These are quite rare. This error was caused by the same event that caused the 1943 copper cent or the 1944 steel cent. That is, the coin was struck on blanks left over from the previous year.
