Owner's Comments

CAC. David Lawrence - December 2018.

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

This is the only major doubled die reverse in the entire Buffalo Nickel series.

Circulated Condition: There are probably a few hundred examples in existence with most of them being in low circulated grades.
Uncirculated: In Uncirculated condition they are very scarce and possibly no more than 20 examples exist in all Uncirculated grades combined.
Variety Attribution: The strongest doubling is on the words FIVE CENTS. Also the words E PLURIBUS UNUM are doubled but not as dramatic as the words FIVE CENTS.
Note: There is also a 1935 Doubled Die reverse Type 2 but the doubling is much less dramatic and worth much less than the Type 1.
