V Nickel Value and Condition
To get an idea of what condition your V Nickel might be in, you must closely examine the coin and its details. One easy way to begin this process is by carefully observing the stars around the coin’s outer edge. If the coins are significantly worn, then your coin is probably in Good condition. If the stars have good texture with minimal wear, then your coin may be graded Fine.
If the stars are crisp with no sign of damage, your coin may be in Extremely Fine condition. While the stars are a good starting point, you must also closely examine other coin details, such as the date or “V” with the same careful attention.
