Which nickels have little value?

Some nickels are only worth face value. Some are not selling too well at this time such as common date, circulated Jefferson nickels, heavily used nickels, and nickels from the last few years, and common modern nickels. These are VERY common - spend them. They do not sell. We do not buy them unless we are forced as part of a larger collection of good coins.


What is a valuable old nickel?

The 1937-D 3-legged buffalo error nickel is among the most valuable of American coins, and one of the top nickels for nickel collectors to own. If you have one of these, let us know!
