FS not FS, FT not FT

I was reading something, or could have heard it on different youtub channel. Basically saying you need to check either variety's or errors get the
FS or FB/FT

I can see that I didn't word my question correctly. So will try it again so that it is wording it a little different. What I'm trying to ask is; if you think you may have a nickel with Full Steps (PCGS) you have pay as if it was a variety. Plus it is the same for the PCGS FB.

:eureka:

"FS" is a early die state designation on nickels for 'Full Steps'

"FB" is an early die state designation on dimes for 'Full Bands'

"FT" is an early die state designation on dimes for 'Full Torch'

NONE of these are considered a variety ......
