In 1938, designer Felix Schlag immortalized Thomas Jefferson, America’s third President and the author of the Declaration of Independence, on a five cent piece that has been known ever since as the Jefferson Nickel. While the Basic sets contain no significant rarities, the Major Variety set includes a few pieces that will be challenging. Most of the toughest pieces will be the earlier issues from the first five years or so. These include the 1942-D over horizontal D, 1939 Doubled Monticello variety and the 1939 PDS issues with the Reverse of 1940.

Notes: No bonus points are given for Full Step designations (FS) in this set.
