The low mintage of the 1950 Jefferson nickel was due to the inevitable post-war recession that hit the US economy in 1948. Enough nickels were in circulation that few new ones were needed.

The Value of A 1950 Jefferson Nickel

Thanks to a small amount of hoarding that hoped to cash in on the low mintage, Mint State 1950 Jefferson nickels are easily found. Unfortunately, not much care was put into their manufacture, and most survivors have below average strikes. This means that Full Steps examples are rare.

This is one of those early dates where no nickel with six Full Steps has been seen by the major coin grading services.
