Full Step Jefferson question

3 posts in this topic

I have been trying to learn to identify full step Jeffersons. I noticed on all of the modern coins (going back to 1991) there is a slight waviness about 3 steps down on the left side, between the left columns. This is present on all of my proof sets too from 1991 to present. Are these still considered to be full step if there are no other defects?

Absolutely, BeeMan! Full steps according to PCGS is 5-5-5-5 under each pillar without a break through the steps. NGC will not give a Jeff a FS to a holder unless it is 6-6-6-6, unbroken all the way across. Slight nicks and scratches are for the most part ok.


For more info on Jeffs, I would suggest:
