    Alright guys, you did very well on the last series of Jefferson Nickels, so now it is time to crank up the difficulty and evaluate a coin that brings absolutely everything into play. Please GTG of the 1944-D Jefferson Nickel shown below. I have attached a poll for you to cast your vote and you may select up to 4 different things: the numerical grade, 5FS or 6FS or NOT FS, the * designation, and the + designation.


    As always, comments welcome, and please remember to vote in the poll.

    I'm at MS 67, though I'd be fine with 66+ as there are a few very small nicks on shoulder, chin and on the left side of the reverse building. I'm going 5FS as I think the 6th is disqualified due to the weak strike on the bottom step under the middle/right pillar. The * is always difficult, as it is so subjective, but I would give it the *. So, a long way to say MS67* 5FS

    I think that the 6th step is there. The luster is amazing but I think that the contact holds it back.

    I think the minor surface marks on the lapel and in the field on the reverse keep it from 67, but the luster and eye appeal warrant a plus grade. It a close call on the 5 or 6 steps. It looks to me like the 6th step is complete, but its not a given.

    MS 66+ with 5FS ....this one has a few more hits than some of the 67s you had but still is relatively clean and mark free (hence I bumped it beyond a 66 by giving the plus)...the steps have minor ticks, but not enough to prevent a 5 steps designation (the 6th step has too many breaks) has nice eye appeal but not enough for a star

    Ding, Ding, Ding, we have a winner! Nice going @ddddd this was a tough one.


    Honorable mention to @Springford CC who right before @ddddd's correct answer guessed MS66+ 6FS.

    I did say I would be fine with 66+, but gave it a 67. So, I'm going to take that as a win :)
