    Thats a nice worn nickel right there, Id say it would be worth from 10c - 50c. I know some people try using some sort of chemical on it to "reveal" its date, but it just looks really worn down to me. I do like that "s" mint mark though

    Nic-a-Date will damage the nickel but you can get a date.

    Find a pair of them. grab a small ball ping hammer and make a pair of earings or cuff links.
    These tend to go for about a buck or two apiece.

    That would be some serious craftsmanship creating earrings or cufflinks using only a ball peen hammer on those nickels. ;)

    You have to have a few washers to set the nickel on. Same idea as spooning a coin.

    In my area people ask for no. Buffalos so they can make jewelry. I have at least 500 of them but I won’t sell them to have holes drilled in them.

    Not sure what type of feed back you are looking for. You have a well worn Buffalo nickel with no date. Worth very little over face, but maybe @EvanCrook1 would buy it.

    There are no 1938-S Buffalo nickels. They were only minted in Denver that year. There is a 1938-D over S variety, though.

    Nic-a-date does damage the nickel but if it's dateless, isn't it just about worthless except to hobo nickel carvers anyways?

    I guess what I'm saying is, if the date isn't visible anymore, whats the harm in using it to uncover it, just for a hole filler even?

    It's not worthless if it's a rare date like a 1914-D or the 1916 DDO or the 1918/17 overdate.

    but if you can't make out the date or identify it? That's what I'm talking about though.

    2 feathers or 16 DDO have pick up points other than the date to identify coins with premiums.

    Vinegar and peroxide does a better job with less damage

    I got a dateless buffalo nickel at a supermarket once, but I recognized it as a 1913-S Type 1.:wideyed:

    I restore them then spend them. Sometimes holding up the check out line. @Collecting Nut

    People love it. But I don’t use nickel date. I treat the whole coin
