After maintaining neutrality for two years, the US responded to the bombing of Pearl Harbor by declaring war on Japan. Sixteen million Americans then fought valiantly for the world's freedom in a war that ended in Allied victory in 1945. Our commemorative collection begins with historical narrative and an archival image of our wartime leader, President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Features a 1943 Lincoln steel penny produced to save copper for the war effort...a silver Walking Liberty half dollar minted between 1941 and 1945...and a silver Jefferson nickel minted between 1942 and 1945. A 3-cent Roosevelt postage stamp completes the set. Certificate of Authenticity included.
