Jefferson Nickel : Type 4, Return to Monticello:

I found this date very hard to come by with MS66-FS/ Grade with only (25) Certified thru Ngs And Pcgs combined.

Low-Pop/High Grade Modern Six-Stepper-Jefferson Nickel! Finding this Awesome coin with its' complete fullsteps
was a stroke of luck! These are considered condition rarities in which with new collectors coming into the market
wanting their own Jeff-Sets, the prices will most certainly take off within the near future.

Pcgs Total-Graded 125/ with only (17)in MS66-FS/ None Higher!
Ngc Total-Graded 30/ with only (8) in MS66-FS/ None Higher!

Ron Guth:
Following the completion of the "Westward Journey" Nickel series in 2005, the Mint decided to return to a more familiar theme. In particular, the "Monticello" design on the reverses of 1938-2003 Nickels was restored in 2006, hence the "Return to Monticello" name for this new type. Thomas Jefferson still graces the obverse, but in this pose he faces almost completely forward and his bust is shifted to the left side of the coin. The word "Liberty" appears in script on the obverse above the date, and the legend "IN GOD WE TRUST" appears along the outer edge on the right side.
