    That's right, at least re-purpose them...hey, Hobo Nickels use old Buffalo nickels for their artistic change in
    appearance, mainly because the coin is heavy, with potential for a masterpiece (see attached)

    Throw in school tot lots. Will give a detectorist fits what he keeps finding dateless nickels.

    I once sold a big baggy of lincoln cents, on ebay, that even coinstar would refuse. My listing was for you to throw in tot lots to payback the detectorist that keeps invading your territory or to throw in the hunting area where your next MD club is going to have their hunt.

    I have soaked dateless buffs that I detect in a 50 / 50 solution of peroxide and apple cider vinegar and it will bring the date back out on most of them. The only problem is they will look like new nickels.
