Rare and Desirable 1916 Doubled Die Nickel1916 5C Doubled Die Obverse VF30 PCGS. FS-016. An attractive light to medium gray example with faint streaks of deeper color on the obverse. The doubling on the digits of the date is crystal clear and the bison's horn is essentially full. There are even traces of luster in the protected areas. In addition to being extremely rare, the 1916 Doubled Die Buffalo is also one of the most dramatic errors of this type minted during the 20th century. The 1916 Doubled Die nickel was unknown to the vast majority of collectors until the last few decades. This variety was first published in the July 1962 issue of The Numismatic Scrapbook magazine, with the variety not gaining widespread popularity until a decade later. In 1978, the 1916 Doubled Die nickel made its first appearance in the Guide Book, forever popularizing the variety among a much larger segment of the hobby. Population: 5 in 30, 59 finer (4/06).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2TSS, PCGS# 3931)
