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.

Not with that date. The Buffalo Nickel was minted from 1913 through 1938.

Please check again and post a new question. Buffalo* nickels were minted from 1913 to 1938. [*] Nickels depicting an Indian head on one side and a buffalo on the other are called Indian head nickels OR buffalo nickels, but not "buffalo head" nickels because they show the entire buffalo, not just its head.

I suspect the number is 1920, which makes it a regular Buffalo nickel, and it's worth about one dollar.
