    Buffalo nickel

    How much is a buffalo nickel worth that is worn down to where there is no date? I found a cache of 39 of them in a mason jar in the woods about 8 inches down. Thanks.

    About .15 to.25 each if you find someone who wants them, soak them in vinegar for a week and maybe the dates will come back.

    Why would vinegar make the dates come back? Im trying it but I'm just wondering about the science behind this

    To be honest I don't know the science behind it but I do know it works, some coin stores carry a item called nic-a-date which does the same thing, although I heard that tarnishes the coin very bad. The vinegar will also tarnish the coin but not nearly as bad. I did a roll of dateless buffalo nickels a couple weeks ago and it raised all the dates except for 3 of them. I should add to make sure all the head sides of the coins are facing up and if you notice a green or blue substance start to form on any of the coins change the vinegar. Let me know how you make out.
