The Philadelphia Mint struck more than 32 million nickels in 1918, with Denver and San Francisco contributing another 8.3 and 4.8 million coins, respectively. While all three issues are generally plentiful, there exists among them a variety that is both intriguing and conditionally rare: the 1918/7-D. The overdate was created in the Philadelphia Mint engraving department when a working die was hubbed with two different dates. Due to the massive work load on the engraving department, it’s likely the overdate occurred as a mistake, and not a deliberate usage of an outdated obverse. Examples of the 1918/7-D are known in very early and late die states, indicating that this was a fresh die at the beginning of production and was used throughout a normal coinage period. The NGC population is only 15 with 4 higher.
