Althought this nickel is quite old, it is not so valuable. In fact it is worth only five cents. In 2006, the value listed for a 1948 Jefferson nickel MS-60 in pretty good condition was one dollar.
With any coin, you need to look at a variety of figures before attempting to estimate the value. The first thing you should look at on your 1948 Jef. nickel, is that it has no D or S mintmark, meaning that it is a Philadelphia mint coin. In 1948, the Philly mint produced almost 90 million Jefferson nickels. The other thing you should look at, is the condition that the coin is in. A 1948 Jefferson nickel PCGS MS-60 (Uncirculated) is worth only one dollar and a MS-65 (Choice Uncirculated) is worth approximately $3.50. So unless your coin was purchased or traded from a collector or somebody else with the means of keeping a 60 year old coin in Uncirculated condition, it isn't worth much more than 0.005 cents over face falue.
The value of a Jefferson nickel with a p mint mark will vary depending on the year and the condition of the coin itself. A person should have the coin appraised for an accurate value.
July 25, 2009 The value of a circulated Jefferson war nickel is based mainly upon the value of the silver they contain which is $0.78 today.

It's a Jefferson Nickel not a Monticello Nickel an most are just 5 cents unless it in the grade of FV-20 or better and has a D or S mint mark then value goes up. But without that information an accurate assessment is not possible.
Please don't assume that because a coin is old it has to be made of silver. It's made of copper-nickel like all other nickels except the WWII ones with a large mint mark above the dome of Monticello. 1941 is not a rare date for Jefferson nickels. There's more information at the question "What is the value of a 1941 US nickel?".
All US nickels minted in 1943 have a large mint mark on the back.
Despite being over 50 years old, it's still worth five cents. There were over two billion nickels dated 1964.
Without seeing the mark it is difficult to give an estimated value. The mint did not intentionally make a nickel with a mark above the head but sometimes damage to the dies will create a mark. I would suggest you take it to a coin dealer who can actually see what you have and perhaps can give you more information about it.
$2 to $9000 depending upon the mint mark and the condition of the coin.
The coin is still found in circulation and is face value
In average condition, 5 to 10¢
Mark Jefferson was born in 1976.
That depends on the type of nickel and the date. On the updated Jefferson nickel 2006-present, the mark is on the front just below the date. On the 2005 nickel, it's below the word "Liberty." For nickels dated 1968-2004, the mark was below the date. 1938-42 and 1946-64, it was on the back, next to Monticello. 1942-45 were the silver "war" nickels, with the mint mark in a larger size above Monticello. Going back to buffalo nickels, the mark was on the back, right at the bottom.
Please check your coin again and post a new question. Buffalo nickels were minted from 1913 to 1938. Any 1940 nickel would carry the familiar Jefferson design. Also, there has never been a "B" mint mark on any US coin.

It depends. If the Mint Mark is the big D on the back over the dome, then the silver value is about $1.12 today. Dealers will likely give you around 90 cents, give or take a dime. if it is the regular, issue, then likely it is worth only a few cents over face value
