Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: The 1949-D Nickel is considered as one of the more common issues in the series. In circulated grades up to MS64 it is also very common. In MS65 condition it is a little scarcer but still available in large quantities and even in Uncirculated rolls. In MS66 condition it becomes scarce, especially with Full Steps on the reverse design. There are less than a few hundred known in MS66 with the Full Steps designation. In MS67 condition it is extremely scarce with less than a few dozen known. In MS67 with Full Steps it is even scarcer, with less than a dozen known and none surviving in better condition.
