Jefferson Nickels Full Strikes 4 to 6 Full Steps FS
Hi, Welcome to my website. I have been collecting Jefferson nickels for 27+ years, since the early 1990's. I think I had, up til 2012, one of the best Jefferson nickel collections around. But, due to some health problems, I decided to call it quits and pass my coins onto other collectors. When I'm up to it, I'll attend a show to cherry-pick some coins. But here's how it usually goes. If you like something, use my email for any questions or to get a total price on shipping and handling. All information is kept private as long as the transaction goes well. Again, I'll be glad to help with any questions but on the simpler inquiries, like, what are full steps?, what grade is my coin?, there are many websites and books available that have paid a greater devotion in supplying those answers. Let your experience be your guide for what you can reasonably expect will be your best coin.
My listings don't change much because advertising is not cheap but I do have a sale now and then.
Oftentimes I receive emails from collectors wanting me to buy some coins and many times they don't provide adequate pictures or descriptions. So to save a few some time, the following is usually how it folds out.
I would be interested if they grade MS65 similar to the following pictures;
Also take note, the first two coins have one thing or another preventing a FS designation.
(I'll usually send back a couple of photos to help illustrate the kind of coin I'd have interest in)
If you would like me to have a look at them, you would need to send them and pay postage both ways in the event
I would need to return them.
(I have had a few collectors send me their coins for review. I have bought very few.)
This is the only way I could make a determination on their quality and value.
And tell you if I would have an interest in them. I have seen many coins in my day. There are collectible coins and there are the run of the mill coins.
(And I don't care who has graded them unless, of course, you're an old timer and regular who has come to understand an agreeable descriptive coin grading language.)
I know how the photography of coins is very difficult. But I need to see the strike, condition and luster and the steps before committing to buying any coins.
I can say, I wouldn’t be interested if the coin(s) look beat up with many hits and marks of the sort or the strike is weak, where details on the coin are missing, lacking full luster.
Mainly, why I have provided the many pictures especially here. Hopefully you will be able to make the pictures larger when viewing them.
