Best Answer

1867 shield nickels were struck in 2 different designs. Early ones rays between the stars. Part-way through the year the design was modified to remove the rays.

Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of 09/2011:

With rays:

Very worn condition - $31

Moderately worn - $59

Slightly worn - $83

Almost no wear - $270

Uncirculated - $390 to $29,450 depending on quality

Without rays:

Very worn - $17

Moderately worn - $31

Slightly worn - $40

Almost no wear - $103

Uncirculated - $150 to $1,500

DISCLAIMER: The retail values quoted are the best available as of the date shown, but may vary significantly due to changes in the precious metals market. Also the wholesale (buying) price of a coin will be less than the selling (retail) price. A reputable coin dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation based on inspection of the coin.
