What does a complete circulated war nickel set go for?

Have doubles of 1930s, 1940s wheat pennies I can trade to a couple people that live where I do for at least a few or half of the set. But my goal is to barter with stuff I find and make attractive packages to sell for $ then I can buy a coin or 2 that I think is cool and valuable enough to be PCGS ($100-250)

    Those sets aren't very valuable with completely uncirculated coins, as worn coins are really only worth their bullion value, I'd guess about $10 to $12.

    Look around on E-Bay for sold listings.

    I’d be better off just collecting a uncirculated set for it seems wouldn’t i?

    Best bet. Get the Unc set. It'll look nice and be a good conversation piece.

    The circ. ones are just melt value coins.

    I like your thinking. though. Trade roll finds oe cheap pickups for silver and then sell the silver. As long as you are on the profitable side of these equations you can do well.

    I don't sell my coins so I can't help... but others here can shed light on your question.

    Circulated set in a cheap holder for no more than $15. Uncirculated selling at $50-75. If they are in a good quality holder, such as the hard plastic Capital holders, that can add $20 or so. However, cleaning is a common issue on the uncirculated coins...

    I have a set of circulated war nickels I acquired around nine or ten years ago....$10....in a Capitol holder....I picked it up because it was cheap and I did not have a set in a holder, just loose nickels. Cheers, RickO

    Back in the day, I remember unc sets being a little more valuable. I could generally find them at shows for a hundred bucks and flip them for 115 or 120. I would do a few of those and dinner was on me......

    Many circulated war nickels hit the melting pot even before silver coinage ended in 1966, and many more have been melted since then. The 1943-D was preferentially saved due to being the lowest mintage, but it's possible that others like the 1944-S might have fewer total survivors now than the 1950-D.
