Good evening. I just wondered if there was a satin finish for the 1971 Jefferson nickel? Here's a few images of one that appears satin like that I pulled from the wild....

I do not know of a satin finish that year.Is that pinkish color true to life?

I suspect the lighting used to take the photos influenced the tone/tint we're seeing. Maybe.

Looks like a very nice business strike but if it is the rare proof with no s then it is worth over 1000 dollars.

A very nice business strike , not satin finish . Nice steps for a 71-P in the wild .

Attractive example, fairly normal-looking.

the master was redesigned for 1971, leading to fresh, satin looking surfaces on some coins

No satin finish for 1971s https://www.PCGS.com/prices/detail/...st-active/sp Not a proof (and therefore not a no s proof), and Nick10 is on target with the remastering for that year https://coinweek.com/coins/coin-pro...rson-nickel/

The finish is a bit typical for that year actually, see some mint state examples here https://www.PCGS.com/coinfacts/coin...-5c-fs/84086 ...But does have good steps and a strong strike for that year. 1971 Jefferson nickel value depends on the condition, grade and if the steps are fully struck on the building (Full Steps) on mint state examples, but FS is rare normally but the 1971 Nickel is one of the first in a long time where Full Step versions become available in larger quantities.
