1938 mini buffalo nickle

The message entitled 1938 mini buffalo nickle posted by A. Winterburn on 3/6/03 12:54 in the buffalo nickels coin collecting value forum has now expired. Sorry for the inconvenience. However, here are some links to help you find the 1938 mini buffalo nickel information you want, whether you are interested in selling, buying, or just learning more about indian-head/buffalo nickels.

The following are 1938 mini buffalo nickel auctions currently running on eBay. These are live auctions. Click on any of the links for more information.

If there are no listings above, there may be none of these nickels available, or it could be a bug in the program. I recommend clicking over and searching for "1938 mini buffalo nickel" or something more specific. The variety of coins, paper money, and tokens being auctioned every day on eBay is amazing.

If you're wondering how much your indian head nickel is worth, i.e. the value of an American buffalo (bufallo/bufalo/buffallo) five-cent piece minted between 1913 and 1938, these eBay auctions are one of the best ways to get a true sense of the going prices. (For help judging the condition of your buffalo nickel, click here.)

To sell your 1938 mini buffalo nickel, you have two main options. The first is eBay or another online auction. Auctions have always been the best way to get the real value of your coins, without a coin dealer taking a cut. Selling on eBay (or eBay UK, eBay Canada, or eBay Australia) is easy. You just have to register, which is easy and painless.

The disadvantage of selling coins on eBay is that it can take some time, especially if you have more than one coin to sell. The fastest way to cash out is to sell to a coin dealer. One national dealer I know is Jake's Marketplace. They're good folks and they give fair prices. But you may prefer to find a local dealer.

By the way, before taking your collection to a dealer, you may want to get the most current and reliable price estimates for your coins. Invest the 10 bucks in this year's Black Book or Red Book Guide to U.S. Coin Values. They're both comprehensive, reliable sources for coin prices.

Have Fun!
