So I save my change. I have for quite a long time. Anyway, as I was getting ready to turn them in for cash when my friend who was helping me said some of the change I had is worth money is there anybody who can help me figure out if they are worth anything. I have 3 1963 Jefferson nickels with no letter and the edges are raised up

Pictures are the best way to go, post them if you can. From your description, it sounds like basic face value nickels.

, the 1963 nickels were minted in Philadelphia or Denver and are both very common so only a general face value applies here. If a Denver mintmark, the D would be on the reverse to the right of the building Monticello, and blank if Philadelphia. The mintmark position did not get changed to the obverse until 1968 with the years 1965-1967 inclusive bearing no mintmark at all.

Oh yeah, those 1963 nickels would have to be in superb condition to be wirth something...

a dryer coin could fit that description, it would be a damaged coin and damaged coins have no premium value

Any pictures you can provide would be helpful. I have a HUGE imagination - and I can imagine these coins being worth a plug nickel to millions (remember I have a very big imagination)

In general, modern coins like the 1963 nickel can potentially have some value but its only typically the rare highest grades that have that value while your everyday pocket change finds are worth a nickel or only slightly more. There are also errors and varieties but this is a more specialized area that requires some time to learn.
With a 1963 nickel, in addition to being in a mint state (uncirculated) it also would be even more valuable if it had full steps on the reverse. The steps of Monticello on a Jefferson nickel are often weakly struck on circulation issues (i.e., Mint State issues). Coins that have more sharply struck steps are more desired by collectors, who term these coins "full steps." While the top graded example of a 1963 is worth $550, a full steps version could be worth $4,500. Note these are rare finds and most do not have either that grade or full steps. https://www.ngccoin.com/news/articl...eps-nickels/ and https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide.../nickels/25/

The description you give might be a dryer coin which is just damage, but once you eventually figure out how to post photos here others will help verify that. https://www.coincommunity.com/forum...g-images.asp
