1914/(3) Buffalo Nickel. FS-101. MS-64 (PCGS). Exceptional quality and eye appeal for this intriguing Buffalo nickel variety. Both sides are sharply defined in all but a few isolated areas, the surfaces fully lustrous and dusted with lovely iridescent golden-apricot toning. First reported by R.A. Medina in 1996, this overdate seems to be traceable to a working hub that transferred the feature to a number of working dies, at least one of which was shipped to the San Francisco Mint. Controversy surrounds this variety, however, with some numismatic experts skeptical that it is a true overdate, hence PCGS attribution of this coin as 1914/(3). Even so, this variety remains popular with specialists, especially those who recognize the rarity of high grade Uncirculated survivors such as this attractive near-Gem.
