LOL ok for the sake of compromising, we will call it 5½ silvers.

LOL - ah, the silver nickel rises again! Being that they're Roger's finds, he's welcome to call them as he see's them. winking smiley

Just remember that there is enough silver in the silver nickel to make an oversized 100+% silver half-dime. . . . In fact, during WWII, when nickel was needed for the war effort, there was talk about going back to the half-dime. It was also proposed to make the nickels 50/50 silver/copper. However, changing the size or the weight of the coin would have messed up all of the coin operated machines already in operation so it was voted down. (We hear that same argument today regarding dollar / two dollar coins)

Instead, to keep the size and weight and look of the nickel the same, it was determined that an alloy of 35% silver, 56% copper and 9% manganese came out at the right size, weight and look.

Another big congrats to Roger on that bunch of silver coins ! thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up
