Here is an interesting 1913 type 1 "maybe" doubled die obverse buffalo nickel. Looks like class vi doubling on the date like there
is on one of the type 2 dies. See especially the "3" in the date. Would like to see a higher grade of this one

    @Coin_nut1977... I do see what you are referring to, however, without better pictures, more magnification, or in hand, I think it is wear.... ICBW... BWB... Cheers, RickO

    I don't know but what is going on under the #1 next to the 3 ? looks like the letter "U", would be interesting to look at under a scope. I've seen ones that seem to have a "Floating" #3 above the 3 in the date. very interesting what goes on at the mint.

    You guys who look for these obscure anomalies I’m certain would have taken a covered wagon and a pan out west to find your gold fortune 175 years ago.

    Looks flat because of uneven wear., yet the "3" does look strange. The top of the "1" to the left looks like it's exhibiting a slant.

    You're right. A less circulated specimen would be nice.
