Ron Guth: The 1940-S Nickel is a very common coin with hundreds of examples certified by PCGS at the MS-65 and MS-66 levels.  Superb examples, on the other hand, are extremely rare.  A high percentage of the certified Mint State survivors exhibit full steps, indicating good striking characteristics for this date/mintmark combination.

The finest examples certified by PCGS (as of January 2012) include a single MS-67 (non Full Steps) and 8 MS-67 Full Steps.
