Yes. I started in 1948. They were very scarce even in the early 50's.
Same here as I'm always looking at my wife's change. Bills too. Lol
Then it would be a lot more common. In circulated condition these are a kind of grade rarity. Of all the 1950 D nickels made probably 95%+ are still in MS condition. A circulated 50-D is a rarity.
The 50-D is the only Jefferson nickel I never pulled out of change. (at least through 2002. In the later years I've never seen a 2003, 03 D, 09, 09 D, 2019, 2019 D, 2020 or 2020 D.)
A couple of dealers cornered the market on them in Mint State. One of them bragged that he built a house from the profits he made. The coin is probably scarcer in the circulated grades than in Unc.
in the mid 1960s, the 1950-D nickel had a retail price of $35. That was when $35 was the better part of a week’s wages and was “real money.”
I've been searching since the early 1960's and never found one
Just checked the pile again and there is a 2003 P in there if you want it.
