    1916 Buffalo Nickel, PR67
    Final Year of the Matte Proof Production

    1916 5C PR67 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Only 600 matte proof Buffalo nickels were struck in 1916, marking the end of matte proof production for this series. Proof coinage did not resume until 1936, when satin and brilliant finishes were used. This Superb Gem 1916 is fully struck and richly textured with delicate gold and pale lilac toning. The preservation is outstanding. The 1916 proof is scarce in this grade, and finer pieces are rare. Population: 41 in 67 (4 in 67+), 10 finer (4/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 278V, PCGS# 3993)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
