    Nickel Hunt

    Ok Decided to document results statistically ... Spent 100 dollars ($2.oo/roll) for a Box of Nickels at the Bank. I knew this would be labor intensive.....so I decided the quickest way to peel the paper away from the rolls in an orderly fashion. Took a pair of Tweezers and slipped a pointed end under each end of paper roll, grasped both ends with my fingers and lifted. The weight of the Nickels rolled out the nickels onto a cloth.

    1 Box of Nickels $ 100 2,000 Nickles
    1 Roll of Nickels $ 2$ 40 Nickles

    Nickel Composition 75% Copper / 25% Nickel Exception: War time Nickels 1942 - 1945 (with large mint mark on reverse) 56% copper, 35% silver, 9% manganese---all nickel was removed to use with steel on Battleships and Armored Vehicles. As of April 2019 the silver melt value is $0.86.

    So How many pre 1960 Nickles did I find.

    Date Range found: 1941 - 1959

    22 Nickels out of 2,000 resulting 1.1% ! 1 of which was 1942 (with Silver) All were of average grade.

    Keeping stats is all up you, go heavy with the details, or nothing at at, it's still a hobby & a HUNT. Good luck in all your future boxes & rolls.
