Jaime Hernandez: The 1972-D Jefferson Nickel is very common as over 351 million examples were struck for circulation. Examples up to about MS65 condition should be fairly easy to obtain with most examples in existence remaining raw as they are not worth grading in MS65 condition or lower. Examples in MS65 with Full Steps characteristics are much harder to find but enough examples are out there to meet the collector demand. In MS66 condition they are very difficult to find, especially with Full Steps characteristics as there are not that many known in MS66 Full Steps or higher.
