1957-D Nickel

Do you have a nickel and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Sure it is technically five cents but the short catchy "nickel" titles always grabs the attention. This a common date and even a common find for me, I have found several. This 54 year old coin still has most of the pillars on the reverse visible but I am reluctant to grade it anything higher than fine.

From 1938-1964 the mintmark is located on the reverse usually to the right of the building Monticello. On the silver nickels from 1942-1945 it was above the the Monticello and much bigger than normal.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Cents / United States of America
Year: 1957 D
Mintage: 136,828,900
Metal: 75% copper 25% nickel
Value: $0.05

While getting ready to move into a new house, I came across some coins I stored away years ago. One is a 20 Balboa silver proof and the other is a Trinidad and Tobago coin set from 1973. Could you tell me the value?
