US nickels have never been made of steel. 1942-45 nickels were made of an alloy of silver, copper, and manganese. Nickel was needed for the war effort. Please see the Related Question for more information.

No. War nickels dated 1942-45 contain 35% silver, with 56% copper and 9% manganese.
Check that date again, because the last year for buffalo nickels was 1938.
