An extreeeeemely nostalgic issue for your author, since I first owned a Jefferson Nickel struck on a 1¢ planchet waaaaay back in 1969.
With all due apologies to my 1969 self, my old coin was ~MS63 RB level quality if I remember correctly, while this one is a stone cold, full red gem and is about the nicest example I’ve ever seen of any date.
This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
