Coin Description: From a technical standpoint, this coin is finest coin in the entire collection. The surfaces are immaculate and as close to MS68 as an early Jefferson Nickel can come. A small distraction between the 4th and 5th steps is all that precludes a full step designation of this nickel with an exacting strike. Stunning luster and fantastic pastel shades of sunshine yellow and pink toning combine to give this coin a visually paralyzing effect on first time viewers.

Comments: In all of my time collecting Jefferson Nickels, I have never encountered a coin that deserved a higher grade than this coin. Every MS68 Jefferson I have ever seen had MS67 surfaces with mind blowing toning that yielded the MS68 market grade. If ever a coin deserved a "+" grade, this is it. Unfortunately, I just have not been able to enter this in my primary registry set as it competes for the same slot as my monster Appalachian.
