Buffalo Nickel Values – Coin Price Guide

Buffalo Nickel Values

Today, the Buffalo Nickel is extremely popular among collectors. For some, the challenge of assembling a complete set of Buffalo Nickels provides an unparalleled exhilaration.

While putting together a complete set of Buffalo Nickels is difficult, locating certain editions of the Buffalo Nickel in well-preserved condition adds an extra barrier to completing a collection.

For collectors, the condition of a given Buffalo Nickel is of paramount importance and it naturally follows that collectors are willing to pay high premiums for coins in exemplary condition.

Unfortunately, because Buffalo Nickels are all old and nearly all of them were in general circulation, they are often fairly worn. When it comes to assigning a value to any given Buffalo Nickel, one must consider both age and condition.

Of course, the older the Buffalo Nickel the better, but the age by itself does not determine value. If you are in possession of a Buffalo Nickel struck during the first few years of mintage, that has somehow been carefully preserved, you likely have a top-valued Buffalo Nickel.
