In October of 1942 to 1945, nickel was removed from the coin and was used for the war effort.

Buffalo Nickel

The 1913 Buffalo nickel and its successors through 1938 represent a sharp departure from anything ever done before in circulating American coinage. The pieces have a high-relief, sculptured appearance, and not the flat (or nearly so) field characteristic of other issues.
