Owner's Comments

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: The 1947-S Jefferson Nickel is somewhat common in most grades. Over 24 million examples were produced and there are numerous other dates with much lower mintages. At the same time, there are many other dates with higher mintages as well. In MS65 condition or lower it is not difficult to obtain and can be purchased at  very reasonable prices. Only in MS66 with Full Steps is it very scarce. In MS67 with Full Steps it is rare and usually only serious collectors can own one.
