1943-D 5c Jefferson Nickel 5.5 STEPS

Coins-United States | user_9894

Here we have a 1943-D Jefferson Nickel with 5.5 STEPS and it's a MS 65. I have been looking for one forever.

1943-D had a Mintage of  15, 294, 000, designed by Felix Schlag.

What fun it is finding these coins after may decades sitting around in drawers.

I cut the lights in the last photo to get a little better detail in the image.

Great find! Wonder how many War nickels exist w/full steps. I'd say not many.

It is also a War Nickel.. Good get.. I think I would consider getting that slabbed. Just me. It's not cheap.. Good luck and thanks!

Collecting full step nickels is a challenge. Good luck

That is the first one that I have found. I don't count the modern nickels as they all have steps.

Good shot. I usually count them with a loop. Glad you found the one you were looking for. The fin is in the hunt. Thanks Mike.

Today my hunt was for 1917 Walking Liberty Half Dollars. You know obverse/reverse mint marks.
