    Last nights nickel boxes

    Did 2 nickel boxes last night and got the following:

    3 war nickels (43P, 44P, 45P)
    64 pre-61's (keeping 60 and 61 now to fill a book)
    1 British 20 pence (1982)
    1 Bermuda 5 cent (2000)

    As I was sitting there thinking about all the empty holes in my book, I was hoping to see a 50D show up. Got toward the end of one roll just as that though poped in my head and low and behold a 1950 was there. Flipped it over with great anticipation and no mintmark....

    Grabbed a box from a BOA which had different wrappers than I have seen before. They were light brown with teal writing on them. Does anyone know which carrier uses these?

    Make sure to check the '43P for the 3 over 2 or eye doubling and '45P for DDR.

    Re: Last nights nickel boxes

    Is there a reason to keep nickels before 60? Obviously not counting the war nickels. I found a few in my box this week, but didnt hang on to them, they are in my buckets for dump. I didnt save them, but if there is a good reason, I will start in the future... Obviously I kept the ones that fit missing dates in my collection.

    Re: Last nights nickel boxes

    There is no difference in the alloy of the pre-60 with the obvious exception of war nickels. I keep them to build a couple of books for my kids. Being that they are a bit harder to get than your average 60's, 70's, 80's, ect I hang on to the ones I see. If you find some in good shape like a few that I have I think there eventually will be a premium on some dates.

    Re: Last nights nickel boxes

    Cool, thanks. I have space to keep them, so i guess I might as well, they only cost me a nickel after-all. If I ever decide I dont need them, hell, they will sell for a nickel! What a great hobby!

    Re: Last nights nickel boxes

    Did 2 of the 3 nickel boxes last night with the following results.

    28 - Pre-60's
    12 - 60's & 61's
    1 - war (44P)
    1 - Canadian nickel (2000)

    Both these boxes had a very low count of pre-60's but did find a few nice 38's, 39's and 40's. Was able to switch out a few of my slots in my book.
