Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1943-D Jefferson Nickel is the most common of all the War-time "Silver" issues.  Thus, collectors have thousands of high-grade Mint State examples from which to choose, including hundreds in MS-67.  The quality of the 1943-D Nickels is excellent. In fact, this is one of the rare instances where the Full Step population exceeds that of the non-Full Steps.  The finest examples certified by PCGS (as of February 2012) include 137 MS-67 non-Full Steps and 2 MS-68 Full Steps.
