    Fascinating 1916 Doubled Die Obverse Nickel, XF40

    1916 5C Doubled Die Obverse XF40 NGC. FS-016. The time that passed between the 1916 Doubled Die Obverse's striking and its discovery spanned several decades, and several more years would pass before the variety became popular. In his A Guide Book of Buffalo and Jefferson Nickels, Q. David Bowers (2007) describes the variety succinctly: "The date is boldly doubled, as are certain other features. This issue, unpublished until 1962, is one of the most sought-after of all Buffalo nickel varieties and is listed in ... popular references. It turns up with some frequency, but usually in worn grades."
    Dusky rose-gray and tan patina with dots of charcoal visits the surfaces of this lightly circulated representative. Well struck overall, though the bison's head shows a degree of softness. The doubling is strong, and in the case of the feathers, visible to the unaided eye. An important mid-level exemplar. Census: 9 in 40, 46 finer (11/07).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 2TSS, PCGS# 3931)
