Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1971 Nickel is one of the first in a long time where Full Step versions become available in larger quantities.  They are very affordable up through MS66, then the price rises dramatically as the population drops off a cliff in MS67.  The finest examples certified by PCGS include six at the MS67FS level.
