    I was offered a roll 40 1937 P Buffalo Nickels full dates in VG and up condition for 50 cents each. I have no idea the going rate and if this is a good deal.

    I have seen rolls at $50+ in recent auctions, in good condition I would say $1 a coin so vg and up would seem to be a steal

    I'd probably do it for $20, but I have a nickel roll collection (Jefferson) so it kind of makes sense. But I think to an average collector, it might be a 'lot of the same' and better ways to spread a $20 purchase over a variety of dates/mms. I agree with JCKTJK; it's a very fair deal. And it only needs to matter to you. No explanations required.

    Probably a good price but is the roll you are asking about original? In other words, has it been searched through? Is it an original bank roll? Or was it put together later?

    It seems fair, as dateless go for around .30 each.
    1937 is a common date but if they are mixed mm's maybe you can find a 3 legged in there. (Cough cough.)
    .50 cents doesn't sound outrageous to me.
    Of course the early buffaloes are the desirable dates.

    Yep. I would jump on a deal like that. But then I love the average stuff as much as the eye popping stuff.
