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.
