Copper Buffalo Nickel

Any thoughts on this? Worth getting it graded? Though I can’t read a date. Any value? Thank you for your input.

    PMD. Environmental damage. Not an error. Probably worth no more than 5c in that condition.

    Corroded metal detector find. ;)

    Value 5 cents

    Yes. Certainly not worth grading as it appears to be a severely corroded, dateless Buffalo.
    Might be worth a few cents more than a nickel though as part of a dateless Buffalo grouping with other dateless herd mates. Folks do pay a little more than face for these but the rewards aren’t going to pay for a vacation, new car or early retirement.

    It's only 75% copper.

    As mentioned above, nickels are 75% copper. When they spend time in the ground they turn that sort of color.
    Do not grade, it is a damaged coin.
    At least you asked here first.

    What date would you write on the submission form if you sent it to be graded?
