Buffalo nickels were made from 1913 to 1938. Please check your coin again and post a new question.
There are two different Jefferson nickels dated 1942. One is made from 35% silver with a large "P" or "S" mintmark on the reverse over Monticello. This is a War Nickel that's worth about $1.00 in circulated condition. The other is a common copper-nickel coin that in circulated condition is really only worth face value.
No such coin exists. All 1942-D nickels are made out of the standard 75% copper 25% nickel. Only 1942-S and 1942-P nickels were struck out of the "war nickel" alloy of 35% silver. A 1942-D nickel is worth about 7 cents if circulated and a couple of bucks if in better shape.
The value just for the silver is about $1.10, better circulated coins can be $4.00-$6.00.
No such thing. The last year for buffalo nickels was 1938.
Average circulated, about $22
The only years US nickels were struck in silver was 1942-1945. 1914 is a Buffalo nickel. Coins in average circulated condition are valued at $15.00-$30.00 depending on grade.
The last Buffalo nickel was made in 1938. A 1942 dated Jefferson that has a large mintmark on the reverse is 35% silver and worth about $1.00. If it does not have the large mintmark just spend it.
This is a War Nickel (1942-1945) that has silver in it. The large "S" above the dome identifies it, circulated coins are valued at $1.00-$3.00 uncirculated are $5.00-$10.00 but all values depend on he grade of the coin.

An 1899 nickel would have a picture of Miss Liberty on the front and the Roman numeral V (= 5) on the back. > All nickels except those from WWII (1942-45) are made of copper-nickel, not silver. > There's no coin called a "buffalo head" nickel. The names are either an Indian Head nickel or a buffalo nickel.
Copper-nickel, not silver. The only nickels that ever contained any silver were the famous "war nickels" made from 1942 to 1945, when silver replaced nickel metal because nickel was needed for the war effort.
The Buffalo/Indian Head Nickel's composition was 75% copper and 25% nickel. The only war-time silver nickels were from 1942 to 1945. A well-circulated 1920 nickel values from 5 cents to 2 dollars. If never circulated with original luster and full horn in reverse could be over $100 for a 1920-D. If the color is silver toned or shiny then it could be the original strike or has been cleaned or dipped in a cleaner.
