Jaime Hernandez:

The 1947-P Jefferson Nickel is one of the more common issues in the series. Only in MS66 or higher is it scarce. With the Full Steps designation, it is also common up to about MS65 condition. In MS66 Full Steps it becomes scarce with a probably no more than one or two hundred examples known. In MS67 Full Steps it is really tough to find and less than a dozen or so examples exist, with few or no examples known in better condition.
