The Value of A 1938-D Jefferson Nickel

Denver managed to produce a better strike on the 1938 Jefferson nickels than the Philadelphia or San Francisco Mints, on average. It is probably more likely to find a Full Steps nickel from Denver than the other two mints, but they are still difficult to find. After all, all three mints were working with dies from the same master hub that had impaired details.
