Best Answer

Standard five-cent pieces were not made out of copper in 1946. Your piece could be one of 2 things: 1 - most likely it was plated by someone as a chemistry experiment. If its weight is the same as a standard nickel, that's a giveaway. In that case it's considered altered or damaged and is only worth face value. 2 - it was struck on a blank intended for another coin, such as a U.S. cent or foreign coin. In that case its weight and/or diameter may be a bit different. You'd need to have the coin examined by an expert to tell.
