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.
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. In uncirculated collector coins the values vary greatly with the year and mint mark. To establish an estimated value for an uncirculated Jefferson war nickel, the year and mint mark must be known.
In circulated condition, no added value 1940 Jefferson Nickel; With no mint mark, in very fine condition is worth $0.20, uncirculated is worth $1.75, proof is worth $37.50. With D mint mark, in very fine condition is worth $0.25, uncirculated is worth $3.75. With S mint mark, in very fine condition is worth $0.30, uncirculated is worth $3.50.
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?".
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.
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.
