How much is a copper nickel from 1946 worth?

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.
