About this journal

The 1951 Denver Jefferson:
( You can also view all this in Ngc Registry)
 
This year was no different, like most 50's & 60's minted Jeffersons.  When collectors out there were looking for
quality' they had their work cut-out for them.  When the US Mint back in that time-era  pumped out
millions of these,officials never took the time to inspect them.The very few that does show half decent quality
will most certainly cost you some money obtaining them.
As of 2011:
After referencing, I've noticed with the Top 2 Grading Services in our country, (NGC and PCGS),  there
was a Combining Total of  (1,178) that was Certified, with only (55) that reached the MS-67 Level.
August 2017 Update:
In just 6 years-  NGC Total Graded 738  where now (77) have graded MS-67 
PCGS Total Graded 1,523 where only (13) are at the MS67 Level.   / Its pretty obvious that Pcgs shows more value
than Ngc on this date. I think most collectors are standing back and see how Ngc handles all this- hopefully for
the better.

THE 1942 DENVER - PRE-WAR COPPER JEFFERSON

AMAZING HISTORY OF THE 1942-D JEFFERSON: This Date being the Last-year minted,(Before the War nickels came out). Ive found that this has a Very Interesting History-Value to it,than a Monetary one. The 1942-D nickel is not a silver nickel. That year the Denver mint only struck this type that was .750 copper and .250 nickel. Imagine, being back in that Time/Era all this attenton was diverted when the US-Mint announced and spread the news about the New Silver Jeffersons being struck! Silver

I picked a good day , " Window Shopping"...

Each Jefferson I seen, looked, Fresh out of the Mint! Last month, I decided to get out of the house, an told my wife, I wanted to go Downtown, an' do some window shopping.

I was looking at a Display Case of WW II Jeff/Nickels, and the owner just happened to come by, an'wanted to know, if there was anything he could do to help? I mentioned,that I'm into collecting Jefferson nickels, an just came

TIME-LINE: THE "BIRTH" OF THE JEFFERSON NICKEL

1938: TIME FOR A CHANGE: It's about what it was like in those days, an'what "Our Designer of the Jefferson Nickel" went through,and had to accomplish,to get this Winning-Design'. Felix Oscar Schlag (December 4, 1891 ? March 9, 1974) Back in 1938, there was a big rush, to get rid of the Indian/Buffalo nickel, the public was wanting something different for the nickel, it had used up its 25 year life span. The Treasury Department decided to have a National Competition for a New-Design, Honori
