1916/1916 5c Doubled Die Obverse NGC AU55

DLRC #: 238100 // PCGS #: 3931

(FS-016) This is the famously rare 1916 double die nickel with strong bold doubling of the date. Especially difficult in higher grades since this variety was not discovered until the 1950s. A light orange hue accents pleasing, original surfaces. Solid AU example of this scarce variety.
