I keep all nickels I get in change along with pennies, dimes, and quarters. All just go into a change jar.

I keep them. I figure why not keep them if I'm pulling out all the wheat cents from the same era.

I have not saved a single nickel for the last 60 years other than readable-date Buffs.

I'm not sure why, but I dump pre-60 nickels into a special box. This actually came in handy last year as I found that my sister-in-law was trying to make nickel folders for each of her two grandkids, and I was able to donate a healthy pile of nickels to her. I made a list of the one's she still needs and recently found another five, which I'll give her when I see her for Easter dinner.

I have been pretty unable to get many coins of any denomination the past year, but what I do run across I'll keep.

While my days of being a CRHer are behind me, I still save pre-1960 nickels when I happen upon them.

I have tossed more than I can count, in the short time I've been searching nickels. Tossed half a dozen non silver content 40's this week. Let me know if there is a reason not to.

The RedBook says pre-50s nickels are worth more than face value.

Pre-50s nickels can be sold by the roll for profit similar to selling Wheat penny rolls.

Good enough, I'll do some research and get back to you, you do the same and we'll post here. Thanks for the info.

What kinds of prices are you seeing? I don't plan on going through mine to separate them out...just more curious than anything else.

Now I have to wonder myself. I checked ebay, and I see a few listings of circulated Jefferson nickel rolls but not too many.

I'm keeping them based on the mintage figures. I don't actually keep anymore 1959 nickels just like I don't keep 1959 pennies. I assumed the much smaller mintage figures of wheat cents compared to memorial cents is part of the reason why wheat pennies are worth more than face value.

I looked at the sold rolls and it looked like uncircs, like dates and wartime nickels, are most of what makes up these sales. At the end of the day, if it makes you happy, that's all that matters, enjoy what you do or it's not worth doing.

The only reason why I started to save all Jefferson nickels from 1938 to 1964 is because 60 years ago I said to myself, someday you won't see anymore of these with mint marks on the reverse . So hence I saved all circs and BU Jeff's singles and rolls all 3 mints . I wouldn't say I've made a killing but I had tons of fun sorting them out by Date , mints and condition in plastic tubes .

Dumped over 1,000 1946-1958 a couple years ago, and those were accumulated thru roll hunting in about a years time about seven years ago. Most of those were found in collection dumps so I just felt they were just too common to hold.
When I listen to LED ZEPPELIN...so do my neighbors...

Dirt fishing since '72
