PCGS Matte Proof-67. Ex
– American Numismatic Rarities, LLC’s “The Classics Sale,”
July 25, 2003
, Lot 313, illustrated, sold for
$4,255.00 From the Richard M Collection of Proof Buffalo Collection
The 1914/3 overdate was first
reported in 1996. The overdate is barely visible and shows but a trace
of the top of a 3 to the left and right of the top of the 4.
The 1914/3 overdate dies from
all three Mints are believed to be from a single working hub (a hub has
raised design elements and is used to create the dies that strike the
coins). This is in contrast to the 1918/7-D Nickels, which were made by
double-hubbing a working die.
The finest Uncirculated examples graded

The finest Uncirculated "1914/3" example graded by PCGS are 2 MS-67's.
The finest Proof examples graded by PCGS are 7 PR-68's.
