The single most valuable buffalo nickel is the 1937-D 3-legged variety, followed by the 1918/17-D double die, and then the 1913-S type 2.Note that the coin is called an Indian Head or Buffalo nickel, but not "buffalo head" - it shows the entire buffalo!

The 1913-D Buffalo nickel has two distinct varieties, the first type shows the buffalo on a mound, and the second type has it on flat ground and values are very different. Assuming the coin is circulated, the type 1 has retail values that run from $14.00-$60.00. The type 2 has values of $90.00-$258.00. The coin needs to be seen and graded for an accurate assessment. Values are a market average and only for coins in collectible condition, coins that are bent, corroded, scratched or have been cleaned have far less value if any to a collector or dealer

All buffalo nickels were struck in the same alloy of 75% copper / 25% nickel that has been used for all 5-cent pieces except the famous "war nickels" made during WW 2. The latter were made of silver, copper, and manganese because nickel was a strategic war metal. The term "nickel" was applied to the coin long before the buffalo design was adopted.

Take the coin to a collector or dealer because values in the low grade of G-4 run from $8.00 to more than $300.00 depending on which type it is.
