    Description

    1938 Pattern Jefferson Nickel PR66 Deep Cameo Uncertified. Not listed in Judd or Pollock. Left facing bust of Jefferson gazing upward, with the standard legends and date as on the circulating Jefferson Nickel. The reverse depicts Monticello with a map of Virginia below. The legends are consistent to the legends on the accepted design, but MONTICELLO is shifted left to make way for the map. Silver composition. This is a rejected design by Frans Karel Hejda from the design competition of early 1938. Felix Schlag's view of Monticello was rejected and the view changed to that seen on this piece, an unofficial pattern struck in an unknown small quantity in more recent years from a die made from the original Hejda galvanos. The die has since been destroyed.
