The Elusive 1955 Jefferson in Quality Condition-

James G. Berline


I had to go back and check this coin again, thinking that perhaps my eyes were playing tricks with me,but there it was!

This Jefferson caught my eye,a very nice find! In 1955 most all Philadelphia minted Jeffersons were poorly made,showing alot of nicks and roughness. This coin is a condition rarity in MS66 and above.

Having spent a great deal of time trying to locate one with nice fullsteps with no success,

I decided it would be best searching these that show rare eye appeal,for 1955 Phillies I believe these are truly limited,this will make a great coin for my collection.Finally my last coin is filled, however will keep on updating this collection periodically.


Remember when searching out any for your collection,the 1955 Philly demands a good eye and a bit of luck to spot,especially showing smooth fields on both sides of the coin. The ultimate of course is finding a brilliant white Jefferson with those elusive strong full-steps. Im still looking!
