1959 5C, FS MS65FS Certification #40402264, PCGS #84065

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1959-P Jefferson Nickel is a fairly common issue for the Jefferson nickel series. It is very common in most grades except in MS65 and higher where it becomes scarce. In MS66 condition it is a very difficult issue with less than a hundred or so known. With Full Steps it is even more difficult with about 50 examples or less known in MS66 FS. In MS67 it is extremely difficult to locate and less than a handful are known.
