I really like Jefferson nickels. The design is very nice and Jefferson was one of the greatest of our Founding Fathers. He was a very interesting man and accomplished much in many fields, a true American Renaissance man. The Westward Expansion coins added interest to this long running series and have increased collector interest but not very much in the long run.

I hope you have some nice Jeffersons to share and that you enjoy this thread.


This nickel is much nicer in person.

Here's a nice Jefferson/Buffalo. One of the Westward Expansion Series coins. SMS with a matte finish. I really like it.

Art, thank you SO much for taking the initiative for this great thread. The Roosevelt thread has become one of my favorites here and I've been meaning to start this one for a while. I'm excited to see all the beautiful examples of my favorite circulating series.

Nice Jeffersons Scott. The war nickel looks pretty dark. They tend to do that in circulation or less than perfect storage.

Thanks! That was when I was bored and had disposable income and saw a decent deal on Heritage. Seems like $120 is a great price for a pretty proof from 1938!

You found a proof?!

And is that '41 the one you found in circulation recently?

The proof and the '41 were actually from the same batch of nickels I picked up at the bank about a year ago. Makes me think the culprit was a kid who found daddy's "special" change jar. Never found anything quite that nice since then, though.

I really like that '64! I've seen so many hundreds of them that I forget proofs even exist!

Speaking of nickels anybody else keep keelboats and peace pipes when they find them?

Nice nickels Mark. I don't bother keeping the 2004 and 2005 issues, just too many floating around out there.

I very rarely see a keel boat. Followed by the peace pipe.

BTW forgot to add captions for coins. Top one has a lamination along the crease on Jefferson's lapel. Next one gold toned inside mint package. Third a sms. Fourth struck through grease area in front of forehead, on to face, and coming off chin.

Most of the Jefferson's I have are in mint or proof sets. And I only photographed a few of those. Just to hard to get pictures on them through the cellophane or plastic.

Looks like album toning to me. What a beautiful coin.
