    I went through about a grand in nickels before I found a buff. Found a liberty, my only one, with dumb luck on my first box ever.

    My war nickels are probably 1 for every 1 or 2 boxes.

    I don't think I've ever been skunked on a nickel box. Probably done like 20 of 'em, at least 1 war nickel in each, sometimes 2 and a random buffalo every few boxes

    I did two boxes of nickels last year, found one war nickel.

    Did $300 in CWR of nickels, found one war nickel.

    I was helping my buddy dig a trench in his backyard over the summer to run electric to his shed, found one war nickel about five inches deep.

    Found a war nickel in a teller's tray last week.

    That's the extent of my nickel searching. Haha.

    1/box average depending on the company
    brinks is actually the best for nickels, which is strange as for all other units, they have been the worst.

    I've done ~24 boxes of nickels lifetime that produced 16 war nickels, no key/semi-key dates, no buffs, and no V's.

    Those are good odds for the buffaloes. Way to go

    I do about 3 boxes of nicks a week when my halves are all done. Last year I averaged about 1 war nick for every 2 boxes, and 1 buff for every 4 boxes. Nicks are cheap and banks always have plenty of boxes on hand, not a bad way to pass the time while you're waiting on an order.

    I've done about 30 boxes, I've found 22 war nicks, 10 buffalos, 2 proof nickels (1970-S and 1994-S) and one magician's nickel (tails on both sides). Best boxes: 4 war nicks (that happened twice) and a box one time with 2 war nickel enders (that was it in the box though). I have only been skunked on 3 boxes before though.

    Here are some pics of my nickels.
