The 1915 Buffalo Nickel can reach as high as $50,000.00 in value, depending on the condition and grading of the coin. All coins in 1915 were normal. If you were looking for something exciting with this year, such as double die, three legs on the buffalo, or a misprint on the year, you will be disappointed. None of these abnormalities appeared in any of the 1915 coins. At least that has been discovered to date.
The coin was made in Philadelphia (no mint mark), Denver (“D” mint mark), and San Francisco (“S” mint mark).

Recommended Buys for the 1915 Buffalo Nickel
Here are my personal recommendations for the budget minded, avid collector, as well as high end collector.
If you just want to get your hands on this coin, just to have in your collection, go with a F12 Philadelphia coin, which you can probably find for around $10 to $12.
Mid Range for the Average Collector
$135 gets you a MS64 Philly coin. Yes, Philadelphia is probably the least desirable coin for this year, but at the same time, it allows you to get a beautiful looking coin on the cheap. You could spend close to $2000 for a coin from San Francisco of the same grade.
High End Collector
The 1915-D and 1915-S with PCGS grading of MS66 are both great coins to have in your collection. You should be able to find either of these for less than $5,000. If you want the best of the best, go for the 1915-D PCGS graded MS67 coin for around $50,000.
