Hello again to the CCF family and friends. Hoping everyone's turkey day went great and non-Covid. I come to the group today regarding a 2014 D Jefferson nickel. I have attached the OBV and REV photos. I have compared them to others online and those at PCGS, and it appears to be something awry when one looks at the REV "UNI". They are clearly touching as in writing, but the others do not, nor the other online references (including ours). Also, the second "O" in the word Monticello appears to be oddly shaped, even depicting a shadow around the bulged areas. So, the upshot is......what do you folks make of it? Does at least the "UNI" appear to be something we have not encountered before?

Thank you in advance for your help. Always open for feedback.

Clearly they are touching. Never noticed before. Now I'll have to go look.

The "UNI" being connected is normal. I see no problem with the "O" either.

Perhaps one of our real experts may see something but I do not.

I appreciate the feedback, but I've looked at many examples of mint uncirculated at PCGS and even on our site here, and there are clear and distinct ends to the letters when you look close enough. Mine do not...they run from one to another....please look at the references or even others close up and I'm sure you will find the letters are not supposed to do this. Now, am I saying it's a mint issue?...Not necessarily....this could happen by being in circulation I suppose, but those three letters are the only ones by coincidence. One would imagine that the worn down look would appear elsewhere too? Please do this for me and let me know....i know I can't be seeing things...Thank you.

Okay, I yield to the floor of CCF members and let this drop. I hope you understand I wasn't arguing about this, but only trying to better understand where the comparisons' were coming from used to determine the final finding by the group (vs the ones I used). As always I think you each for your valuable time....and.....on to the next. Stay safe out there. ~ jake

you can see here on PCGS, they touch, maybe some Die Deterioration to make them look a bit "more touching"?
