Is this no year Buffalo nickel worth anything?

Dealers pay ten to fifteen cents each for 'dateless' Buffaloes. Most dealers will resell them for up to a dollar. A few dealers will use substances like Nic-a-Date or plain vinegar to try to 'raise' the date temporarily (using acid) so the coin can be identified. If you have a scarce date/mint (mint marks didn't have the same problem as the date), then the coin will be worth more than the fifteen cents.
However, it will never be very valuable. Nic-a Date leaves an ugly mark in the date area and it is considered a damaged coin. The scarce and rare dates that have been treated are only used as hole-filler coins until a collector can afford a decent, unaltered example.
For example, the scarce 1913-S Type 2 that is professionally certified in AG-2 (very low grade and barely readable date) sells in the low $100s up to maybe $150. A dateless 'acid' coin sells for $10 or so.
