1943 Tombac 5 cent coin

Postby JGCanada » Wed Jun 05, 2019 9:09 pm

I have one of these coins. The website under:
5 cents 1944 Tombac Complete price guide and values, shows a small picture of the same one I have that says above it. "Only one known" can someone help me with this? I tried to attach a picture of it but it says the file is too big.

Which is correct?
Your heading says 1943 and your write up says 1944
We are going to need pictures of both sides before any determination can be made.

I am sorry it is a 1943. I tried to attach photo's but they show as to large to attach. Is there an email I can send them to.

If your Tombac is a 1943, the it is common. It is the 1944 Tombac that is rare.

I have tried many times to attach a picture the website will not let me. I keep getting an error that the pictures are too large.

Is the date 1943 or 1944? And is it a coppery-yellow color?
