Question For The Old Timers
I brought up this question some months ago, possibly a year ago and received no comments. Has anyone ever heard of a variety on the Jefferson nickel from 1965-68 labeled a "flap" variety? Back then a seller was promoting this type in Numismatic News in the classified section with an accompying photo. The "variety" was a slightly raised section on Jefferson's collar. Not as a result of a diebreak/ CUD/ striking process,as much as I recall. These seemed to only affect the years 65-68. My NN are long since gone and Google was of no help. Would be effective to go back if one could locate these NN issues. I had 3-4 of these but have long since been lost/misplaced. However,I will search once again to see if I can come up with a coin. I don't recall the pricing of these pieces that the seller was promoting. Don't believe I ever saw any commentary of these in CW Clearinghouse. Maybe someone out there has some Unc./Bu 65-68 nickels laying about and could find one.
