I've seen where PMD can affect these types of designations (e.g. Franklin halves). If that's also the case with Jefferson nickels, that gash across the steps could be problematic. Personally, I don't think PMD should affect an assessment of Strike.
The coin is technically uncirculated. 1960-D nickels almost always have a greasy circulated look right off the press.
As for the steps, it is close to 5 full steps, but not quite. It might be worth a modest premium for the steps it has.
Full Steps Jefferson Nickels
“Full Steps” is a grading designation used for regular strike Jefferson Nickels which have at least five steps visible at the base of Monticello on the reverse. In order to receive the designation, there must be no disturbance of the steps due to strike weakness, contact marks, or planchet problems.
Notice the term:NO DISTRUBANCE OF THE STEPS
That slash through the steps disqualifies this coin as a FS.
@Lehigh96 what say you on the matter? You submit a lot of nickels to be graded, you ever get preferential treatment on FS - maybe designations?
