Description

1916/1916 Buffalo Nickel, XF40
A Problem-Free Example for the Grade

1916 5C Doubled Die Obverse XF40 PCGS. CAC. FS-101. High praise for this elusive variety comes from no less an authority than David Lange, who says in The Complete Guide to Buffalo Nickels that "the 1916 doubled-die obverse is one of the most desirable varieties in this or any series." Most collectors fortunate enough to acquire an example above VF25 or thereabouts in the past few years are aware that the price for their prize will likely reach into the low five figures, a dual function of the popularity of the Buffalo nickel series as a whole and of the widespread collecting of Registry Sets at NGC and PCGS. This is an especially pleasing XF example. The surfaces are remarkably clean for a coin that was in circulation for many years. Each side displays nickel-silvery centers with rose-golden color around the margins. The die doubling is pronounced on the date.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2TSS, PCGS# 3931)
