Hi Lori
To the CCF

Are you sure that it doesn't FS? Hard to tell from your photo.
That would be normal for the nickel.

That's FS on the initials, not F3.

From PCGS coinfacts website:


Quote:
In 1966, the initials of the designer, FS, were added to the obverse edge beneath the shoulder, however this is not considered a significant change.


And the initials "FS" are for Felix Schlag.
