Jaime Hernandez: Jefferson Nickels from 1985 from the Denver Mint are not rare or scarce by any means, as they were struck in the hundreds of millions. However, in high Uncirculated grades this date is scarce in MS66 and higher. With  the Full Steps designation, it is even scarcer. There are no more than a few hundred examples that would probably grade MS66 with Full Steps but more than likely, there may even be less than 100 examples total. In MS67 with or without Full Steps this coin is almost unheard of. Any example that looks MS67 or higher is definitely a coin worth keeping and worth grading, as it would be one of the nicest examples out there.
