    Bruce:
    The variety is not listed in Cherrypickers, so I don't know where else to look.
    Good luck.

    I have only seen a couple sources that actually mentioned this variety, I have never seen one for sale or seen a suggested price for it... I ran extended searches on closed auction listings on ebay and nothing there, nothing on google... hmmm... priceless...I'll give ya $XX for it... lol

    I have never even seen a picture of this variety... Besides the missing FS are there any other fine details missing from the coin or subdued from the polishing of the dies?

    Not listed in CONECA's Top 100 Jefferson Nickel Varieties either.

    I'd be curious to learn more about this.
    It isn't well documented, so info is hard to find.

    I'd have to assume that a number of coins were struck from an over-polished die, but that's just an assumption.
    Would love to see some detailed photos, and possibly get an "FS" number assigned to it.

    Since the initials are on the original model that is reduced to create the master hub, there are four ways you can have missing initials. Overpolished dies, severe die wear, filled die, and broken hub. (Raised letters on the hub have broken off.) Personally the only one I would find interesting would be the broken hub. But if the hub was broken there would most likely be MULTIPLE dies with the missing initials and they would be fairly common.

    Thought of a fifth way, broken die (cud in the area below the bust).

    I know your title is "digging up old threads", but for god sakes, this thread is 6 years old. You'd get better responses if you started your own thread.

    I agree, Bruce 1947 hasn't posted since 2010.

    Speaking of whom, where did he go?
