I'm just old-fashioned. Change the reverse, fine. Leave the obverse alone.

I picked #1 because I don't like modern coinage . The original Jefferson is just fine with me .

I think the side-bust gives it a classy look. The modern ones just don't do it for me.

No 1 for me. Hard to believe that 15 years has passed already. I don't really look at loose change anymore and have maybe 15 or 20 BU rolls of the 2004 and 2005 nickels set aside. I know I made a P&D roll set or two of all 4 Westward journeys but only the bison nickel comes in a distant second for the liking.

Voted #1. Especially 1960s or earlier dies as the cheeks appear more full when compared to 1980s or 90s.

I voted for #1. #1 looks more like a fitting memorial to Jefferson while #3 almost looks cartoonish to me.

I like #2 because it seems more lifelike, instead of just a bust.

Say what you want everyone has an opinion, but #3 is pure artwork and a significant achievement in coin design.

Side view busts have been done forever, #2 is more artsy and better.
#3 is the level of detail coins should be headed in. It should be more than a side view bust in the 21st century.

I was born in 1941.
Not hard to guess which one I preferred.
(Psst, it's #1.)
Describe it as if there were no picture.
