This is one of the years they made nickels partially out of silver. At current silver values, it's worth about 50 cents.

This is a War Nickel (1942-1945) that has silver in it. The large "S" above the dome identifies it, circulated coins are valued at $1.00-$3.00 uncirculated are $5.00-$10.00 but all values depend on he grade of the coin.


What is value of 1942p Jefferson nickel?

That depends on which version you have. If there is no mintmark, then it's made of copper and nickel, worth maybe 50 cents in decent condition. If there is a large letter P on the back (above Monticello), then it's a silver war nickel, worth a dollar or two.


What is the value of a Monticello nickel with no date that is double struck?

If it is a Mint error it may be worth a few dollars, take it to a coin dealer to see if it has any value.MoreIt's called a Jefferson nickel rather than a Monticello nickel. If by "double struck" you mean that Monticello is on both sides (which would account for the lack of a date) what you have is a novelty item called a magician's coin. There's more information at the question "What is a double headed nickel worth?"


What is the value of a 1944 p nickel?

That is a "war nickel". War nickels minted between 1942-45 are identified with a large P, D, or S above the Monticello on the back. These nickels are 35% silver, and so have a definite value. The idiot who says they're worth "about 5 cents" is stupid.

Value of a 1942 Jefferson Nickel?

There were 2 versions of the nickel produced during that year. On the reverse of your coin, above the Monticello there could be a large mintmark of a P, D, or S over it. This means you have a war nickel, during WWII the nickel had its nickel content replaced with 35% silver so these coins, regardless of condition are worth their silver content which at the time of writing is worth around $1.55. However, if your coin does not have a large mintmark on the reverse, it is just a common nickel and in circulated condition is really only worth face value to around 15 cents.
