    1916 Doubled Die Obverse Nickel
    FS-101, Key to the Series

    1916 5C Doubled Die Obverse, FS-101 -- Cleaned -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Strong die doubling is evident on the left obverse border, apparent on the feather tips and the 9 and 6 in the date. The FS-101 1916 is the key Guide Book variety of the series, rarer than the equally famous 1918/7-D. A majority of PCGS-certified FS-101 nickels are in Fine or lower grades. This is a sharp silver-gray example with streaky and slightly granular surfaces. The central reverse exhibits minor hairlines, and freckles of russet patina are noted over the V in FIVE and below the O in OF.
