1950-D 5C MS65 Certification #10805769, PCGS #4042

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

This is one of the key dates in the Jefferson Nickel due to its very low mintage.  its total mintage is only 2,630,000. Compare its mintage to an earlier issue such as the 1943-P where the Mint struck 271,165,000 Jefferson Nickels.

The 1950-D nickel has survived in large quantities over the years as it has always been considered a key date. Therefore, most example were saved and today coins are very easily obtainable even by the rolls.
