1942-P 5C Type 2 PR67 PCGS #4180

I spent 2 days at the ANA Worlds Fair of Money and was surprised how hard it was to find the MS66FS War Nickels I still needed for my basic set. There were a couple of the varieties there that I would've loved to had but simply couldn't afford. About 30 minutes before we were going to leave the show on Friday (our second day) I was walking past Dennis Kings "Coins of Appeal" booth and spotted a beautiful 1942-P proof Jefferson in PR67. He offered it to me at a great price and I bought it intending to use it to start the "Complete" Jefferson War Nickel Composite w/varieties. Much to my dismay I discovered that there isn't ANY PCGS Registry Set that contains ALL of the 35% silver War Nickels. This coin is left out of BOTH the composites for some strange reason. After an email exchange with PCGS they told me they would NOT create a set composite that contains all of the silver War Nickels that were struck so I started the "Basic Proof 1938-1942 Set" in order to display this wonderful coin.

1943-D 5C MS66FS PCGS #84020

I looked this coin up in PCGS's Cert verification application on May 30th, 2014 when I began entering the coins for this registry set and discovered it is listed as a NON Full Steps coin in the PCGS database. I submitted a request for it to be updated to FS and sent pictures of both sides of the slab on May 31st.After 2 weeks of talking back and forth with my PCGS Rep I was told that the coin needed to be sent back to PCGS for validation and possibly a re-holder and new cert #. I was told there was no cost to me and I would be reimbursed for S&H. As of today (June 30th) I have not received my coin back but it has now been verified and updated to MS66FS in the PCGS Coinfacts database. According to PCGS my coin was shipped today... UPDATE July 3rd, 2014 - I have my coin back in a brand new PCGS holder with the new High Security hologram label and the CoinFacts database is now correctly showing this coin as MS66FS. I added photo's of the updated holder today, July 6th, 2014. My reimbursement for shipping & handling charges was approved and should arrive by separate mail in a few days. Thank you PCGS! This is a beautiful blast white coin on both the obverse & reverse with excellent detail and a sharp strike. Even though this issue is one of the easiest and most inexpensive of this series to obtain in high grade Full Step examples, I paid $7.95 more than the (then) current PCGS price guide listing because it was superior in eye appeal & detail to any others I looked at that fit my criteria of MS-66-FS (or better) for my set.
