Shown is a Buffalo nickel from 1930. Almost 23 million of these coins were minted in Philadelphia. According to the Red Book, they are only worth about $2.50-$4.00 as compared to the 1937 3-legged buffalo nickel that can be worth thousands.

    As a child, I used to sometimes get these. I haven't seen one for ages upon ages! : )

    That looks in nice condition. We have a few of them but they are pretty worn. Not long ago we were getting rid of stuff from those who died long ago and found an 1882 shield nickel among a bunch of coins hidden in the lining of an old shaving kit. Or I think it was in the shaving kit, seems our families hid coins all over the place and used silver certificate dollars for book marks. Makes me wonder how much we threw away that should have been given a closer look.
