Many of us collect for the enjoyment, not the profit. Buffalo nickels are cool, but most are not particularly valuable.

As worn as the coin is, it's value is above face (five cents), perhaps 75 cents to a buck.

Actually appears to be a minor DDO. DDO-001: http://www.varietyvista.com/03%20Bu...5PDDO001.htm

Might be worth a couple dollars to a specialist collector, but those scratches aren't appealing.

Wow that's amazing. Most of the coins claimed to be DDO are not and he posted a coin not as a DDO and it turned out to be one.

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

What is the tell tail sign that it is a DDO and not circulation flattening?

to the Community. Might not be worth much, but show it to some young kids who've never seen a Buffalo nickel and look at their faces.

The reason for the low value is the Philly mint made 58,264,000 Buffalos in 1935. So even 84 years later, there are still more floating around than there is a collecting base to drive enough demand to outpace supply and inflate prices much. Most of the dates of the 1930s are the same way, produced by the 10s of millions (1936 was over 100 million); such that bulk lots and bargain bins for Buffalos are mostly full of the late 1930s coins.

Buffalo nickels are beautiful coins though! I am slowly working on a set and I appreciate them.
My hoard of '82s is up to 204! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 382 x 1, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 4, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 5, 1582 x 13, 1682 x 15, 1782 x 57, 1882 x 49, 1982 x 33

Gary: the hardest thing about coins is the grading. Take some time and spend some money on some basic books. It gets much easier from there.

Be happy you can at least read the date :) I have just a few that are so worn, no date is visible.
