Is the diameter of a finish nail the same as that of a common nail the same length?

In a word, no. Finish nails are the same length as common or coated nails, but they are thinner. The head is also smaller.

A 6d (6 penny) finish nail and a 6d 'sinker' will be the same length. The finish nail will have a smaller shaft diameter and a smaller head.
