This site is intended to honor Felix Schlag, the German /
American sculptor responsible for the design of the Jefferson
nickel. It provides information about Mr. Schlag, the
Jefferson nickel competition of 1938, and seeks to be a registry
for the 150 Jefferson Proof Nickel Commemorative Certificates
that were created and autographed by Schlag in 1939.
Please come back often as we add new content.
