1918/7-D Nickel, MS63
Rarely Found in Mint Condition

1918/7-D 5C MS63 PCGS. FS-101. Toward the end of World War I, in 1917 and 1918, the U.S. Mint produced large quantities of minor coins in an attempt to combat a coin shortage. All three U.S. mints making coins at the time--Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco--produced cents, nickels, dimes, and quarters in quantities running from large to record-breaking. With such a large number of coinage dies produced, it is unsurprising that numerous variety coins from the era are known among the different denominations.
The short list of Cherrypickers' varieties created includes those below, although many other minor varieties are unlisted in that reference.

--Cent. 1917 Doubled Die Obverse, FS-101.
--Nickel. 1917 Two Feathers, FS-401; 1917 Doubled Die Reverse (two different, FS-801, 802); 1917-D Two Feathers, FS-401; 1917-D 3-1/2 Legged, FS-901; 1917-S Two Feathers, FS-401; 1918 Two Feathers, FS-401; 1918 Doubled Die Reverse, FS-801; 1918/7-D Overdate, FS-101; 1918-S Two Feathers, FS-401.
--Dime. None known.
--Quarter. 1918/7-S Overdate, FS-101.
--Half Dollar. None known.


Of the varieties above, only the two overdates--the nickel and quarter--can be considered well-known, along with perhaps the 1917 Doubled Die cent. The list does bring up the slim but tantalizing possibility that there may be yet-undiscovered varieties, particularly in the dime and half dollar denominations.
The wide popularity of the Buffalo nickel series overall lends added desirability to the 1918/7-D variety, which has the added appeal of its own Guide Book listing. The satiny surfaces of this piece are covered overall with gunmetal-gray and underlying rose and lilac colors. The strike is strong for the issue and there are no singularly mentionable marks on either side. This is an early die state as seen by the lack of the die crack above the Indian's braid, the sharp impression of the designer's initial, and crisp definition on the underdigit.
