1940-D Jefferson Nickel Value

1940-D Jefferson Nickel Value

1940-D Jefferson Nickel Value value depends on the condition, grade and if the steps are fully struck on the building (Full Steps), referred to as FS. So expect to see a value from 10 cents to $1 if found in your pocket change in grades almost uncirculated (AU) or less, and $2 plus for uncirculated raw examples.

1940-D Jefferson Nickel Value graded and certified MS63 FS is worth up to $22 and in MS67 FS can be worth up to $1,150. However, to attain the higher values the coin must be graded by PCGS or NGC.

Mint Mark Location 1938-42 then 1946-1968

5 Full Steps (FS)

Price guides offer values loosely based on coins already graded or encapsulated by PCGS and NGC, and rarely sample the values of raw, common and circulated coins.

Jefferson Nickels are not silver but consist mostly of copper with a balance of nickel that give them a “silver” appearance. The only exception is in 1942-1945 and they did contain 35% silver and 75%, but they must have the large mint mark on the back and above the Monticello Monument.
