Jaime Hernandez:

The 1986-P Jefferson Nickel is a very common date. Circulated examples can easily be pulled from circulation. Uncirculated examples are much tougher, especially in grades of MS65 and higher. For some reason examples displaying Full Step details on the reverse design, are very hard to find. Any example grading MS66 with Full Steps is very scarce and underappreciated. As they sell for a very small premium. An year can go by or more and you will not find an MS66 Full Steps example or higher in the market, because they are just that scarce.
