Jaime Hernandez:

The 1945-P Nickel is very common in circulated grades up to MS60. In grades of MS63-MS65 it becomes a bit difficult to find but yet still available. Examples in MS66 become scarcer with a few thousand probably still being in existence. In MS66 Full Steps they are very scarce with a few hundred examples known. In MS67 condition they are truly scarce with fewer than 10 examples known and none being finer. With MS67 Full steps it becomes a rarity with about 5 known and none being finer.
