In average circulated condition, it's worth $5 to $7 However, you need to check the back for a mintmark -- either a "D" or an "S" -- above the FIVE CENTS. If it has one, then you need to determine if the coin is type 1 or type 2. This is most easily distinguishable by looking at whether the FIVE CENTS is on the raised mound or within a recessed area. Pictures of the different types can be seen at the following links (replace the " # " with ".") :

  • Type 1 : coinfacts # com/nickelsbuffalo_nickels1913_nickel_buffalo_t1_rev # jpg
  • Type 2 : coinfacts # com/nickelsbuffalo_nickels1913_nickel_t2_rev # jpg

In average circulated condition, with the following mintmarks, they will have the following values :

  • Type 1 : D-mint = $8 - $10 ... S-mint = $25 - $30
  • Type 2 : D-mint = $75 - $95 ... S-mint = $200 - $250

Lastly, if your coin still shows half or more of the buffalo's horn, AND has a "D" or "S" mintmark, you should have it examined and graded by a professional. You can do this at any coin show. Check out http://www.coinshows.com to see if there are any local coin shows upcoming.

There is no such thing as an Indian head nickel minted in 1895. The first Indian head nickel was minted in 1913; prior to that was the Barber nickel, with the head of Liberty.

It's 100% certain that you have an Indian head nickel, and not a Liberty head nickel. There are millions of the former, and only 5 of the latter. Please see the question "What is the value of a 1913 Indian head nickel?" for more information.

There is no such thing as a 1906 Indian head nickel(*). The first nickel with that design was issued in 1913. The previous design is called a Liberty nickel; you can find a list of prices at the attached link.
