Description:
Popular 1916 Doubled Die Obverse
Buffalo Nickel, FS-101, VF30
1916 5C Doubled Die Obverse VF30 NGC. FS-101, formerly FS-016. The doubled date is most obvious on this variety, as the point where the doubling between the dies is greatest. The result is one (19)16 drastically below the other, especially visible on upper and lower loops of the 6. Curiously, the lower two-thirds of the 19(16) is virtually absent. Less-obvious die doubling is also visible at the front of the Indian's profile, the braid, the rear feathers, and the ribbons hanging down near the date. The 1916 Doubled Die is is a high-visibility and high-demand variety in the series, as well as a popular Guide Book listing. The present piece offers bold appeal, with medium silver-gray surfaces and no visible problems. Some interesting die striations appear on the reverse, and a full horn is visible save for the tip. Census: 3 in 30, 59 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2TSS, PCGS# 3931)
