Both these coins were sold by Heritage for about the same price (over $20,000)

If you were offered one of them for free, which would you choose?

The first one. I love the Jefferson nickel, but have that soft spot for the classics now.

It is a dime.

If spruett001 cannot afford $20,000+ for that full steps nickel, I have a proof 1962 That I think is even nicer and only $10. To me it seems wild that somebody would pay huge for a business strike when the proofs are cheap and better struck.

Of course that beautiful bust dime! Who in their right mind would pay $20k for a Jefferson nickel, even for a top pop?

I would go for the 1798 dime. I've just never seen the attraction of paying huge (!) premiums for Full Steps on a nickel, Full Bell Lines on a Franklin half dollar, etc. Fully struck coins are great pieces, and I certainly appreciate them but I'm just not the type of collector seek out the "finest of the fine" - especially at the price points they often attain.

I would like to see what a dealer would offer for that nickel if the owner brought it into a shop. I believe he would offer about 100 times more for the dime. Not many are willing to pay $20,000+ for a common modern coin in top condition.

And why not get a fully struck proof at $10 instead of a business strike?

The dime of course. Top pop or not. Jefferson isn't worth that much to me - unless I am the one selling it

No. You would have to send it to them with the 'Send Topic to a Friend' link (assuming you have their email) or use forum to contact them through their profile.

Without a doubt, the dime as I specialize in the denomination. Assuming I had that kind of money lying around.
