Some info from Coin Facts. 

The 1916 Doubled Die Buffalo nickel is the most popular doubled die variety for the entire Buffalo nickel series.

There are about 200 examples known. Most examples exist in VF grades. There are less than 15 mint state examples known with the highest being two coins in MS64 condition. The doubling is very dramatic mostly going south east of the date and also on the Indian Chiefs lips and chin. This variety is very prominent and it can easily be seen with the naked eye

This is a Class V doubled die and is the most desirable doubled die in the series. I've been able to identify nine different Mint state coins from auction records images. I have a VG08 in my collection.
