The 1916 Doubled Die, the 1918/7-D Overdate, and the 1937-D Three-Legged varieties are three special Buffalo nickel issues that are aggressively sought by novice collectors and specialists alike. This is because all three varieties are recorded in the annual editions of the Guide Book of United States Coins, published by Whitman. The variety was first publicized in 1962 and first listed in the Guide Book in 1978.
With the meticulous record-keeping of the grading services, collectors finally have a glimpse into the true rarity of most United States coins. Most of the key date rarities have been certified after over 20 years of submissions, and any dates relative rarity can be determined in any particular grade. In the case of the 1916 Doubled Die nickel, NGC reports 19 pieces graded this high, with an additional 13 coins graded finer. A foremost rarity in any grade, and highly desirable in such a loft state of preservation.
