Jaime Hernandez: The 1946-D Jefferson Nickel is considered one of the more common dates in the series. It has a mintage of over 45 million, while other dates in the series have lower than 5 million. In circulated grades it is very common. In Uncirculated condition it is only scarce in MS66 or higher. In MS67 with or without Full Steps it is very scarce with less than a few dozen examples known.
