Ron Guth:

The 1971 Nickel is one of the first in a long time where Full Step versions become available in larger quantities. They are very affordable up through MS66, then the price rises dramatically as the population drops off a cliff in MS67. The finest examples certified by PCGS include six at the MS67FS level.
