    Nice!
    I’m hoping to eventually snag one of those for my collection.
    Great backstory to them.

    Never have I thought of owning one. Life is full of surprises!
    I have NO idea on its value. Got it in a collection.

    How can you tell it is a Henning?

    When I was actively accumulating these around 2000, they could be found on ebay for $10 or $15. The cheapest one in ever got was $1, and that included a genuine 1944 nickel. And, that Henning was in AU or better condition (not quite as nice as DCarr's uncirculated example).

    Nowadays, I think they bring around $75 to $100, but I haven't priced them in a while.

    It is 1944, a date that should be 35% silver with a large mintmark above the Monticello. The mintmark is missing! Ahhhh!

    I have a 1944 missing mintmark that I do not feel is Henning. What does it weigh? What is the diameter?

    Seriously?! Like others have commented, I remember picking up examples for a tenth of that price in the 90s / 00s. That's enough to make me dig through some boxes and see if I have a duplicate to unload.

    Nice find.
    After the 100's of Nickel boxes, I still have never hunted one down.
    Congratulations.
