    Hello all! My 50 plus year old Whitman Jefferson Nickel book fell apart on me, so bought a new one and replaced it. While moving the coins to the new book I noticed an anomaly. The nickel that my young 10 year old eyes thought was a 38D, is quite possibly a 58D with a die chip, or PMD, on the 5. If it is a die chip, it's the 1st I've ever found. What do you think?

    I agree. That "38D" is a 58D.
