Jefferson Nickel decisions are the worst. Grade vs Steps.
All my nickels have to meet at least minimum qualifications for strike, luster, and grade, so I already know there's a bunch of dates 1953-1970 that I'll stick with a high grade coin over a full step coin, but the tough decisions are happening within coins designated as full steps from 1938-1952 or 1971-date. Over and over again I am choosing between one that's premium for the grade but has some little flaw on the steps, and one that is more average for the grade but has perfect steps. If one is a real stickler about steps, like I'd like to be, then a high grade premium set is so much harder (or even impossible on some dates).
