The Buffalo Nickel was minted from 1913 to 1938. If yours is so worn that you cannot read the date, it is worth about fifteen cents to someone who will use it to decorate a western belt or hatband. If the date is readable, its value could range from 50 cents to several thousand dollars, depending on the date, mintmark, and condition.

From 1883 to 1912 was the Liberty nickel which portrayed Lady Liberty on the obverse and a "V" on the reverse.

Value of An Indian Head Nickel?

There are many factors that go into determining the value of your coins. First of all you must understand how the coin market works. If the coin dealer runs out of 1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickels, he cannot just call the mint and order more of them because the mint does not make coins dated 1913 anymore. The coin dealer must replenish his supply by buying coins from other dealers or from people that come into his coin shop. What he pays you for that coin is known as the "wholesale" or "value"." If you want to buy that 1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickel from the coin dealer, that is known as the "retail price" or "price"BASICALLY, IT DEPENDS ON THE YEAR OF THE INDIAN HEAD NICKEL
