Elusive 1916 Doubled Die Obverse Nickel, An Attractive AU50 Example1916 5C Doubled Die Obverse AU50 PCGS. The otherwise slate-gray surfaces yield to more lively pastel undertones as the coin turns into the light.

Although first published in the July 1962 edition of The Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine, the 1916 Double Die was not widely known to the collecting community until the mid-1970s. Of the perhaps 100-150 coins believed extant, only 10 examples are Mint State (per Lange, 2000). (NGC ID# 2TSS, PCGS# 3931)
