agreed with @coinfrog - what do you think that you are seeing? As of now, all I see is a circulated 1961 nickel.

I am trying to figure out if it is the same kind of nickel that is going for $50,000 on etsy. My coin looks virtually the same as the $50,000 coin.

It probably is the same as the coin on etsy. A lot of those high-dollar listings on etsy are actually just normal pocket change. Whether it is a ridiculous scam or a money laundering scheme, I have no idea. Terrible site to buy coins.

Don't use etsy listings as a reference!

I don't know what listing you are talking about specifically, but I would venture that what you are seeing is unsold, and is simply someone asking insane money for a regular nickel. There are many such listings on ebay, etsy, kijiji, etc., either the people placing these adverts are dishonest, misinformed, or deficient.

Your coin is a regular nickel, worth FV, sorry.

Yes, would be best to ignore the bogus Etsy $50K coins.

Remember "ASKING" price is not "SELLING" price. Etsy is famous for ridiculous prices asked for normal or damaged coins.

I could not agree more. I've never been on etsy & never will.
All the facts and truth about my coins I can find right here at the coin community forum. Most reliable sight online

Looks like the star is circled. All nickels have that star

And that $32,000.00 one next to it? It's worth about a dollar. Maybe. If you were lucky. The $9.99 one that's third? Face value, i.e., 5. It's NOT pre-war composition.
