1997-P 5C, FS MS66FS Certification #21020018, PCGS #84139

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1997-P Jefferson Nickel is really common. Circulated examples can easily be pulled from circulation. In lower Uncirculated grades they are also common and can be obtained fairly easy. Only in MS66 condition and higher does it become scarce, especially with the Full Steps details. There are few examples known in MS67 Full Steps and even fewer in MS68 Full Steps but none are known in higher condition.
