Rare Set of Elliptical Nickels
1916 Buffalo Nickel
ex-Fred Weinberg Collection
PCGS MS 62blank1 of 2 Known
1906 Liberty Nickel
$5,000 For The Pair


The Buffalo Nickel struck on an elliptical planchet is extremely rare. There are only 2 known for the entire series from 1916 to 1938. Both were in the Fred Weinberg Mint Error Collection for 40 years. Fred sold the other one in a MS 63 holder for $11,500 a decade ago.

The Liberty Head Nickel struck on an elliptical planchet is unique for the series.

These two mint errors were authenticated and certified by PCGS. U.S. type coins struck on elliptical planchets are extremely rare making this a great opportunity to add this set to your collection.
