Rookie Question: is this nickel FS?

This nickle has a minor cut on the bottom step, I’ve been looking at a ton of photos of nickels but it’s hard for me to tell if this is FS or not.

Thanks for you help!

    Good chance the damage on the bottom step will keep it from getting FS.

    Full Steps yay or nay questions and grades have been driving folks crazy for years. I don't think the steps are full, but I've seen much worse get the FS designation.

    If we were all the same, the world would be an incredibly boring place.

    No, the damage under the third pillar breaks the #4 & #5 step.

    No because of the damage but I too have seen many that looked worse and received the FS attribution.

    I agree with the above and say maybe, but does it matter? The rest of the coin shown suggests lower MS or high AU.

    The more qualities observed in a coin, the more desirable that coin becomes!
