Is it true that it's super hard to find a 1950D nickle out of circulation?

On eBay, the price is very low. The trend is low. Why?

Because even though they're tough to find in circulation, they're not rare coins.

It's kind of like trying to find a proof coin in circulation. Difficult, but they're not rare coins.

Depends on where is your location, I found 3 1950d nickels after over 200 boxes.

Collectors of the day realized that the 1950-D Jefferson had a relatively low mintage (2.6 million coins) ... so they were widely hoarded in MS condition.

A few of course made it into circulation ... where they are tough to find today in roll searches. I have found one (1) in 260,000+ coins searched!

I would venture (with no data to back me up) that there are more MS examples available today than there are circulated examples .... and more than enough coins to satisfy demand.

Hence the relatively low price on E-Pray.

A Texas coin dealer cornered the market on these, holding on to over 3/4 of the 50-D nickels that were minted. As a result, they are rare in circulation, and for many years, they trended high. Now that the hoard is out, they trend low, but they are still not found in circulation often, and most of them are in very good shape.

Resurrecting this thread for a question:
If the coin is rare to find in circulation then is one found in circulation at say 58/60, more valuable than say UNC BU/MS? Hope that question makes sense.

No. It would be a cool find, but does not increase the value. As stated, a majority of the 2.6m minted are Uncirculated. PCGS' pop is showing 98% they have graded in MS64-MS66 range (majority in 65-66 range). That's high.

For such a common-to-find coin in UNC, there is no pedigree for it being found in circulation, therefore no added value.

Bottom line, it would be in sub-par condition based on the overall average, simply making it worth less.

I had been looking for one from circulation since about 1960. Never found one until about 2 years ago I found 2 within a months time coin roll hunting. Like others mentioned they were in excellent condition.

I found a first-year 1938 Jefferson nickel in circulation.

When I first got into collecting in the 1970s, the 1950-D Nickel was still a big thing. I bought a Jefferson nickel Whitman album and was able to fill the holes from circulation at the time, including the aforementioned coin. I was even able to find the wartime nickels, and 1939s and 1941s were still plentiful.

Not impossible but also easier than a 1913 Liberty Head Nickel
