Best Answer

It depends on the coin's condition and mint mark. See the Related Link for additional information on prices. In circulated condition, it's worth about 10 cents. The 1939 Jefferson 5 cent coin (nickel) replaced the Indian Head or Buffalo nickel which was minted from 1913-1938. The number of these coins outstanding can only be estimated. However, the value can only be determined by examination as to condition (i.e. Proof, Uncirculated, About uncirculated, extra fine, very fine, fine, very good, good, about good) date and mint mark (if any) and rarity .

As of 11/2008, approximate retail values are:

No mint mark beside Monticello : 12 cents if worn, 25 cents with moderate wear, $2 if almost like new. "S" mint mark : 50c / $1.75 / $8.00 "D" mint mark : $3 / $5 / $22
