An oddity I picked up on ebay (where else?):

nice certificate, they pictured both the Indian and the Bison on the note,
these 2 are often used on the wooden nickel coins.

I have seven wooden nickels, but they are all rectangular.  They all look nice and graded highly.  I was wondering if they have any value.  I bought them on Heritage a while ago and I don’t really see them listed very much.  The ones I have are:

  1. Idaho Spalding Centennial Inc.
  2. Fullerton's Golden Jubilee
  3. Progress o the Plains
  4. Golden Canyon Days
  5. Progress of the Plains
  6. American On Parade,
  7. Albany Centennial

Thanks

Kevin

Kevin....  Alot of the "flats" as they are called, are pretty low dollar items.  Most flats fall into the range of $1 to $10 each.  And it's usually the older wooden nickels that are flats.  Sometime in the late 60's to early 70's round wooden nickels became more popular than the rectangular ones. 

But, there are some rare flats out there that can go much higher.  Nothing on your list strikes me as being rare.  I would say they are all common ones.
Come see a forgotten piece of history...

Thanks, I did not think there was much value here, but they are cool to look at. Being a complete novice with wooden nickels, I did not know they were called flats. Thanks for your help. I see round ones every now and then, are they worth collecting? Can they be graded? If so, by a coin or paper monet grader.
Thanks

Kevin
