How much are my U.S. 1937 nickel worth?

About 1937 Buffalo Nickels (Proof)

All 1937 proof Buffalo nickels were made with the brilliant finish introduced later in the previous year. With a mintage of 5,769 this was the largest production of proof Buffalo nickels for the entire series, and the vast majority are still around today for collectors. Well more than half are known in PR65 or better, and indeed the bulk of these proofs are encountered in the PR64-67 range. Several dozen have been certified by PCGS and NGC in PR68, and PCGS has graded two as PR69. 1937 marked the last year of proof production for the Buffalo nickel, as the following year saw the introduction of the Jefferson nickel, which exclusively represented the proof nickels of 1938.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles.
