I was the highest bidder until a moment before the end (snipe) for a max of $140. I didn't expect to win, but had to try. Went for $100 more than I was ready to pay.
Thanks to OP for posting.

Well I guess that's better than 140 for the seller.

I replied earlier ... adding the following information for our newer & future members who might read this someday ... and wondering why a modern Jefferson nickel commanded such a price.

In 1982 and 1983 the US Mint did not issue their annual 'Uncirculated Set' of coins in special packaging ... which is one of the vehicles where high MS coins can be obtained.

As a result MS65 and higher coins, of all denominations from both years were found in circulation strike bank rolls ... and all certified coins have a premium in the market to a certain collecting base ... those who desire certified MS coins.

This 1982-D MS66FS (full steps) Jefferson is PCGS population 39 with one lonely MS67FS entry better ... so indeed appealing to the Registry coin fan or others who are pursuing a high grade collection.

If you have one just like it ... winner indeed.

WOW! I guess I'm not a big fan of modern coinage, but I'd never ever pay anywhere near this price. I have a complete set in circulated condition, but it's probably one of my more boring sets. I guess to each their own.

Hope the steps look better in hand. From the images it doesn't look like FS.
