Depends on what you consider valuable. Run of the mill 64P and 64D are worth five cents each.

For years, nobody cared about the Ď64 nickels because of the removal of silver from other coins. Nothing changed with the nickels so there was no collective value. No one cherry-picked these things, so they were used. The value in a 1964 nickel is in the steps on the reverse side. If you have full steps, then it starts to be worth something. Most 1964 nickels are worn, worth no more than five cents.

Not familiar with any particular value to Ď64 nickels.

But let me share this oddity I found. Originally thought paint was splattered on this nickel but itís copper. Now nickels do contain copper but not as a layer but mixed with nickel. This may be 1) an experimental coin the mint was checking on or 2) stamped on the wrong planchet. Trying to determine where to have it checked out.

Thanks. Yep, I'd once heard something about having steps but was vague to me. You confirm it. I have 2 64 Nick's. Unfortunately no steps on either.

Thank you all for the replies. I'd once heard something about 64 nickels having some value. I figured if anyone knew about it it would be you guys.

Hope the attached link helps explain what you have.

The value on improper annealing coins depends upon the grade and rarity of the each coin. A nickel or quarter versus a Eisenhower dollar.
A Very Fine coin grade versus Almost Uncirculated.
For a modern dated nickel, maybe $10-$15. Yours may be more desirable because of the look...could pull more on eBay.
