    Are nickels from the 1950's and 1960's worth anything? I have a bunch that my great grandfather collected(like 10) and i know that they only made silver ones in world war 2 time so i don't think they are made out of silver unless someone can tell me otherwise and they don't seem like they have any significance except for being a little old. They don't look to have any errors ether. But its wierd that he would collect them if there worth nothing all the other ones he collected were worth from 10+ dollars.

    War nickels are 35 pct. silver. They are 1942 P.S, 1943 P.D.S, 1944 P.D.S, 1945 P.D.S. The mintmark will be on the reverse above the dome. The 1950 D was worth some good money at one time years ago. Still has some value today depending on condition and grade.

    Well, most from the 50's and 60's aren't.

    I guarantee you they are each worth at least 5 cents. Granted, that won't get you very much these days.....

    The 1950d is a key date an can be worth around $10+ in decent condition. Other than that generally no.
