Jaime Hernandez:

The 1948-P Jefferson Nickel is easy to obtain in circulated grades up to about MS65 condition. In MS66 or higher it is much tougher. With the Full Steps characteristics it is very hard to find in almost all grades. But it is especially much harder to find in MS66 Full Steps or higher. MS66 Full Steps examples carry a high premium and possibly no more than a few dozen or so exist.
