Some info from Coin Facts. 

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.

Properly known as a doubled die. It is a Class IV doubled die, doubled throughout the entire reverse. The doubling can be seen in the bison's fur, eye, and elsewhere and in USA and the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM. As with most doubled dies, die state is critical with this variety. It's very rare at any level of Mint state. I cherried an EDS AU58 many years ago but, like a dummy I sold it-PCGS AU58. Shoulda kept it.

I believe that there are more than just a few hundred of these available as they seem to be plentiful, just check ebay.

Still a great doubled die that should be included by anyone when building a set of buffalo nickels.

You can get a 1935 ddr die one for about $30 sometimes

I concur. According to my records I've cherried 27 total coins of this variety. It is, however, quite rare in Mint state. I've ever seen only one, an MS62.

I have seen some very advanced die states of the variety, which would indicate a full die run and perhaps a few more.

One of my favorites!  F to low VF definitely seems to be the most plentiful of grades and can be had at a reasonable price.  A nice MDS AU example is on my list of wants for sure!
