The Buffalo Nickel, minted from 1913 to 1938, can hold a range of values depending on its condition and specific characteristics. Here's a breakdown to help you estimate the value of yours:

  • Condition: This is the primary factor influencing a Buffalo Nickel's value. A well-preserved nickel will be worth significantly more than a worn one. Grading companies like PCGS or NGC assign numerical grades (MS-60 to MS-70 for uncirculated, and grades like VG for Very Good for circulated coins) that reflect a coin's condition.

  • Year and Mintmark: Certain years and mintmarks are rarer than others and can influence value. For instance, the 1913-D Buffalo Nickel is particularly sought after due to low mintage. Here's a general range:

    • Common Dates (Most 1914-1938 issues): Circulated grades can range from $1 to $5, while uncirculated specimens can go from $10 to $30.
    • Less Common Dates (1913 issues, some 1919-D and 1920-D): Circulated grades can be around $5 to $10, and uncirculated can reach $50 or more.
    • Rare Dates (1913-D): Circulated examples can be worth hundreds of dollars, and uncirculated specimens can reach into the thousands.

Here are some resources to help you determine the value of your Buffalo Nickel:

Additional factors:

  • Variety: There are minor die variations for some Buffalo Nickels that collectors look for, but these typically don't significantly impact value unless the coin is already rare due to year and mintmark.
  • Numismatic value: Beyond its metallic value, a Buffalo Nickel might hold historical or sentimental value for collectors, which can influence its price.

Remember: If you have a Buffalo Nickel you suspect might be valuable, it's best to consult a professional coin dealer or numismatic expert for an accurate appraisal. They can examine the coin's condition, identify any special characteristics, and provide a more precise value estimate.
