How much are my U.S. 1930 nickel worth?

About 1930 Buffalo Nickels

The 1930 Buffalo nickel is a widely common Philadelphia-minted issue and offers ample supplies in both circulated and uncirculated grades. It boasts a respectable mintage of 22,849,000 pieces and some 2,000 extant pieces in MS65 or better; dozens are known in MS67. So, while not as readily available in the better grades as other Philadelphia mint issues after 1934, this piece is far and away more common than virtually any of the other Buffalo nickels that preceded it in the series.

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.
