    I guess they're out there. Just don't recall seeing many of these in more recent years. Mostly 40's war nickels.

    That’s a nice coin in general. Strong strike, nice luster, decent surfaces, and the die crack is very cool. I’ve never seen a crack that big on 50’s Nickel.

    Thanks for that reality check and conformation. This had been in a duplicate and triplicate tube of Jefferson's, ones I've pulled from my Dansco for upgrades over the years. One of my concerns as a non-expect hobbyist, is having something, significant, rare (not that this is one) or unusual in my collection and not know it. :banghead: :happy:

    It happens all the time. My first 50D came as a kid and I stuck it in my earliest folder. It was GEM BU, but to me, it was shiny and stuck in the hole to fill it. It clearly was a liberated coin from someone's collection. 30 years later, I learn the 50D is the hardest one to find during a CRH event. Not even close for me...but who knew? Glad you retained it and found it again...only this time with your improved numismatic vision!

    Based on your photos, I would grade that coin MS64

    I have (what I believe) is a beautiful complete set of mint state Jefferson's, less all the varieties... Then I look at yours and reality sets in! :banghead::banghead::banghead: ;)

    I would be proud to have this coin in my album collection. It’s a beauty!

    I like the 51-S and this is in very nice shape.
