There are some varieties, the best is the reverse doubled die
where the letters of MONTICELLO are clearly doubled.
There is the reverse of 38 and the reverse of 40 which carries a premium,
but to get ridiculous money like that the grade must be very high and difficult to attain in a small population.
Perhaps post photos of both coins, both sides and you will get some informed opinions.
Offhand $16 seems like a great deal of money for this coin, unless there is something special about it. Circulated examples aren't even worth a dime.
The bottom 3, IDK what is going on without being told.
The top one, if it is a common 1939-P mint state USA Coin Book
has it valued at $13 in MS 65. However they are a little high in their
prices, we don't know what the grade of your coin is (it could be better)
but it's not worth paying the $ to have it graded. If it is higher than MS 65
then you got a good deal.
There is a thread here with photos which will explain: 1939 Reverse of 1938,
1939 Reverse of 1940. So use the search box to find that thread. If your coin is one of those, then it looks to be very good.
Welcome to CT.
Here are some DDR references if to want to check your coin.

What do you mean by the flip isn't helping? I don't understand. Sorry if I'm being stupid here or something.
Actually, I use the term "flip" to refer to clear plastic double-pocket safety flips, and not the cardboard holders like that, which I and most people refer to as "2x2's". But that's a digression. Some people call those cardboard holders "flips", too.
In any event, when he said "the flip isn't helping", I suspect he meant the 2x2 holder was interfering with proper examination of the coin.
Oh yeah it's getting in my way of taking pictures. It's causing a reflection from the lights. I think I'll take it out, photograph it, and put it in my own "flip".
It's only an order of magnitude high.
