Jaime Hernandez:

The 1963-P Jefferson Nickel is very common and can still be found in circulation. However, most coins in circulation range from low circulated grades to about MS63 condition. MS64 examples and higher have probably been pulled from circulation already. Examples in higher grade such as MS65 and higher are probably from rolls or Mint Sets. MS66 examples are scarce despite the very large mintage. Examples in MS67 are really scarce with less than a handful known and none being finer.
