Full steps Jefferson Nickel?!

#1 Unread post by BABAKAFSHAR » Sun Jun 30, 2019 11:11 pm

Hello everyone
Are these full steps?!
I’ve seen a lot of different coins in slabs and they all have different types of steps, how a true FS should look like?

Could be, but I know very little about Jefferson's.

Technically the steps appear to have been fully struck but if circulated, no, since grade is more of a value factor than FS.

They are not circulated coins, all of them are from 1948 and they were in sealed bank roll , I pick these from a pawn shop (40’s-50’s and 60’s) for $7 a roll. It’s about 35 rolls , so far I found a lot of full steps in there

Whether circulated, or not, the bottom step is not all there. Looks like contact has moved a significant portion of the bottom step.

Sealed bank rolls do not guarantee uncirculated, I have found circulated coins in bank rolls with BU coins. Also people can recrimp rolls. There's 5 and 6 step designations at NGC and marks don't keep them from grading coins FS even though both grading companies make that claim. I have seen to many FS with beat up steps.

Yes right but these coins have plenty of luster on them, I mean I don’t see any signs as being circulated , they just kind of more yellow , don’t know why
