There are two different Jefferson nickels dated 1942. One is made from 35% silver with a large "P" or "S" mintmark on the reverse over Monticello. This is a War Nickel that's worth about $1.00 in circulated condition. The other is a common copper-nickel coin that in circulated condition is really only worth face value.
