Jefferson Nickel Folder Collection 1938-1961

Jefferson Nickel Folder Collection

1938-1961

Felix Schlag was the designer for the 1938 Jefferson Nickel. The public liked the new coinage designs of portrait and pictorial themes in place of the symbolics of the previous coinage. The obverse features a profile of President Thomas Jefferson while the reverse features his Virginian estate Monticello. From mid 1942 to 1945, so called "wartime" composition nickels were created. The Jefferson Wartime Nickel features the largest mintmark ever to grace a United States coin located above Monticellos dome on the reverse.
