1939-S 5C Reverse of 1938, FS MS66FS Certification #25152921, PCGS #84006

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

With Full Steps, the 1939-S Reverse of 1938 Nickel is approximately ten times as rare as the non-Full Step version.  This does not necessarily make it an expensive coin, just that it makes it a little more difficult for a collector to find an example.  The typical grade is MS65FS. None have been certified finer than MS66 by PCGS, and the finest example is a single PCGS MS66+FS.
