Ron Guth:

The 1969-S Nickel is a common coin in Mint State, but usually appears in MS64 to MS65. MS66 examples are semi-scarce, a function of few submissions relative to the surviving population. The finest example certified by PCGS is a single MS67. Full Step 1969-S Nickels are virtually non-existent due to poor striking characteristics.
