Jaime Hernandez:

The 1961-P Jefferson Nickel is really common, except in MS66 condition or higher. There are less than a few hundred examples graded in MS66 or higher. In MS67 it is very scarce with less than a handful known and none existing in any higher condition. With Full Steps it is scarce in any grade. PCGS has graded less than two dozen examples with Full Steps in all grades combined. The highest example known with Full Steps is in MS65 with none existing in any higher condition.
