Ron Guth: The 1970-S Nickel is very common in Mint State, especially in MS64 to MS65.  Even MS66 examples can be found, but anything better has not yet been seen.  Full Step examples are scarce, but this is one of the few dates of the mid-1960s to early 1970s that has a decent population of Full Step examples.
