The 1950-D Jefferson nickel is the top key date in the series. The extremely low mintage of 2.6 million coins meant that the 1950-D was recognized as a key date coin from the very start.

This resulted in mass quantities being saved by the roll. NGC notes that the 1950-D Jefferson nickel was the most widely hoarded nickel since the 1938-D Buffalo nickel.

NGC and PCGS together have graded more than 9,800 1950-D Jefferson nickels in high-level MS65 and MS66. This large number of Mint State coins graded has also increased the number of certified 1950-D Full Steps coins.

Unfortunately, the quality of the 1950-D was not up to the standards set by the Denver Mint in earlier years. Many 1950-D nickels have soft strikes in the centers.
