1948 is a common date for Jefferson nickels. In circulated condition, if you can get more than a dime, take it and run. Even nice uncirculated ones are only worth about a dollar or two.

Composition: All US nickels from 1866 to mid-1942 and 1945 to the present are made of an alloy of 25% nickel and 75% copper. They don't contain silver. The only nickels to have any silver in them are the famous"war nickels" made from 1942-1945 when nickel was a strategic metal.

If it's circulated, go ahead and spend it.

A nice uncirculated one is worth about a dollar.

It may be a little older but is very common, just face value unless it's uncirculated.
