    A 1981-S PCGS PR69DCAM Type 2 Jefferson Nickel. It doesn’t get much better than this and the scratches are on the slab, not the coin.

    Can you share the differences between types? I admit, I have bought proof sets for the kids, and probably have 2-5 of each year from 68-2010 in the safe for them. I have never looked at them at all.

    Not quite. That is 1979.

    The 81 Type I and II are somewhat different.

    The Type I is the same as the 79 Type II mintmark and the 1980 proof mintmark. They 1981 Type II can be most easily identified by the fact that the loops in the S, upper and lower, are different sizes.
