Description

1916/16 Doubled Die Nickel, AU50
Strong Underdigits

1916 5C Doubled Die Obverse AU50 NGC. FS-101. Lightly worn over both sides, the muted gray surfaces show accents of reddish-tan color. The rehubbing on this variety is strong and clearly visible, even without a glass; the 9 and 6 are especially pronounced. It is so clearly evident that it is difficult to imagine why this variety remained undiscovered until 1962. The Doubled Die 1916 nickel is probably the rarest coin of the 20th century that is included as a part of a regular U.S. series. It is elusive in all grades and virtually unobtainable in AU and Mint State. Census: 5 in 50, 36 finer (7/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2TSS, PCGS# 3931)
