We report the time-dependent nucleation fluxes and associated nucleation rates in a metastable Ising ferromagnet on square lattice with Metropolis (Glauber-type) dynamics. It is discovered that, with lowering of the temperature, fluxes collapse into several representative transient curves corresponding to magic cluster sizes. Those can be associated with physical droplets, i.e., long-lived configurations which provide a link with the classical Becker-Döring picture.
