Description & Analysis

Why the mintage of 1943 D nickels was relatively low is a mystery, but most likely the Denver Mint was directed to focus on other denominations that year. In any case, this issue is plentiful across all but the highest grades. Like most Denver Mint coins of the war years, it is of superior workmanship when compared to those of the other mints. Gems having either 5FS or 6FS are likewise plentiful.

There are over a dozen repunched mintmark varieties, all of them minor, as well as minor doubled-die varieties for both sides. None of these varieties carry noticeable premiums.
