Lot 1665
1913 Buffalo Nickel. Type 1. PCGS graded MS-67 PQ. Sure, the grade on this coin is impressive enough, but wait until you see the color. It is simply stunning. Plus, the color is present on both sides, not just one or the other. The blue, lilac, and golden iridescence make this one of the most visually impressive 1913 Buffalo Nickels we've ever seen, and that's saying a lot (PCGS # 3915) .
Estimated Value $1,200 - 1,700.

Lot 1677
1916 Buffalo Nickel. Doubled die obverse. PCGS graded AU-55. One of the most heralded and desired doubled dies of the 20th century! The doubling of the date is not just subtle, it's incredibly obvious, including to the unaided eye (of those with 20/20 vision). This is a nice, problem-free, lightly circulated example with streaks of golden-brown toning on both sides. The finest examples of this variety included to MS-63 examples: one from NGC and another from PCGS. For the record, the NGC MS-63 sold at the 2001 ANA sale for $63,250 and is probably worth more today (PCGS # 3931) .
Estimated Value $25,000 - 30,000.
