Not sure exactly what info your looking for but I can tell you what I know.

Your coin contains 35% silver and is known as a War Years Nickel. Starting part way thru 1942 and continuing thru 1943,44 & 45, in order to save Nickel  for the war effort, a composition of Silver, Copper and some Manganese was used in place of Nickel. In order to identify the silver coins, a large MM was used
