Limited Edition of 40.
Struck on 24K Fine Gold planchet.
As a companion to the re-release of our Felix Schlg Commemorative.
The design was Felix Schlag’s winning design in the Jefferson Nickel design competition but was never produced as Mr. Schlag had intended. Instead, the lettering was changed along the the view of Jefferson’s home, Monticello. These fantasy strikes illustrate the Jefferson Nickel the way the artist had originally intended before the Mint made their alterations. The first edition had the initials FSNC 2002 to indicate they were produced under the auspices of the Full Step Nickel Club in 2002. For the Landis Studios editions, those markings were removed, thus making them a more attractive than the original edition.
They come in a standard 2 X 2 flip with insert cards that are signed by the engraver, Ron Landis and numbered. ANACS has agreed to encapsulate these if you want to submit them for grading.
