I keep these well circulated nickels in a tube for future gifts for young collectors who are looking to fill holes in their album of Jefferson Nickels. You never know, you may have a chance to influence a young coin collector learn the joy of coin roll hunting, building a collection, learning about American history / presidents, etc. No, not worth selling, but definitely worth saving for that future opportunity to teach / mentor IMHO.
I can't see any steps.
It was a ramp back then.
176,999,158 minted, so not much more added value due to condition, but you asked "worth to collector". A great answer was provided by @runninghorse1.
Stop what? Just because something's older doesn't mean it's worth more. I realize that every morning when I look in the mirror! Lol!
I agree with both of you,Jefferson nickels are the perfect set for the entry level collector, most can be found coin roll hunting ,only a couple of key dates that can be otained quite reasonably, actually down rite affordable! I would encourage any new collector to do a set of Jeff,s
Well its a better looking found 40 then most. I would keep. 10 cents maybe
You the man
Rayrayford2 i wish i could tell you it was worth a lot but i cant bud. its worth about 5 cents. the Jefferson nickel is a great coin to start a collection for any age i think. there's still coins from the 40's,50's and 60's in circulation. im 100% sure of this because i just deposited them into circulation at my bank. i like putting coins like that into circulation hoping new and old collectors will come across them. do any of yawl do this?
I need to "take a number," make a phone call and "request an appointment" to deposit coins, so I will hang on to them until this Covid seige has run its course, unless the new strains perpetuate this semi-freedom of access, in which case, I will bury plastic jars in the NYC Parks for @paddyman98 to detect.
