doubled die 5C Raw. A well circulated example of this
popular double-die. Details of the date are still seen,
and the other diagnostic, doubled feather of the Indian
This is one of the most dramatic examples of a doubled-die,
in the same category as the 1955 doubled die cents.
While those were widely publicized soon after their
mintage, the 1916 nickels saw extensive circulation
before collectors finally started searching for them.
As a result, even coins with the date completely worn
away are rare, and always in demand.
This is a problem-free example of the rarest date
in the nickel series. No more than 150-175 pieces
are sill in existence, with most of them having virtually
no sign of the date. While the date is weak on this
example, it is still seen. This coin represents a
rare opportunity to obtain the key date in the Buffalo
Nickel series at a reasonable rate.
