Famous 1916 Doubled Die Obverse Nickel
FS-101, XF40

1916 5C Doubled Die Obverse XF40 NGC. FS-101. It is remarkable to many numismatists today that the 1916 Doubled Die Obverse nickel, one of the most blatant doubled dies of any U.S. denomination, would have spent nearly half a century in obscurity before it was discovered. Awareness of doubled dies and similar varieties was not widespread before 1955, the year the bold 1955 Doubled Die Obverse cent captured the public imagination, and many important varieties, including the 1916 Doubled Die Obverse nickel, were not found until the 1960s.
By then, many examples had worn to some degree. While this piece experienced a degree of wear, it is nonetheless pleasing, faintly luminous with peach-gray patina and few significant marks. This is one of the relative handful of circulated coins that creates a solid impression of "quality." Census: 6 in 40, 49 finer (3/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2TSS, PCGS# 3931)
