    Low Mintage, Key Date 1916 Proof Buffalo Nickel, PR65 ANACS

    1916 5C PR65 ANACS. The Mint officially ceased proof Buffalo Nickel sales at the end of 1916. The proof issue of this year started out with a limited mintage of 600 pieces, and it seems likely that many examples were destroyed as unsold at year's end. We have little difficulty, therefore, in labeling the 1916 as the rarest proof Buffalo Nickel of the 1913-1916 era. An obviously important Gem, this coin displays bright, mostly silver-gray surfaces with some delicate golden iridescence toward the upper and lower borders. There is not a single ill-defined feature on either side, and distracting carbon spots, as well as grade-limiting handling marks, are also absent. Worthy of inclusion in the finest specialized collection. (NGC ID# 278V, PCGS# 3993)

    Weight: 5.00 grams
