1) to avoid having them stolen

3) save space above ground

Anything else?

Just curious.



To protect them from melting due to a house fire?

A melt down due to accidental fire could be a lucky break.. Then you would have legal scrap without a violation of the melt ban.

Good questions, I was kind of curious myself. Put em in an unmarked box in the basement and I doubt even if the worst case scenario happened, anyone would look twice. Keep collecting them though!! By the way... how HEAVY is $800 of nickels???

Looking for a great summer read?? Stop by www.glennrambo.com You think the US/Mexican border is bad now??

yeah. i think $800 of nickels = 80 kilograms (176.3 pounds).

and volume-wise, it would fit into ten 1/2-gallon juice containers. i know because i have three of them filled, and each has $80 worth (17.63 lbs).

They fit nicely into 2 liter pop bottles. And 2 liter pop bottles fit nicely into holes created by a post hole digger.

Want markers? Build a fence.

Water shouldn't be much of a problem, as Cu-Ni stuff for maritime use has about the same ratio.

I know for sure a $100 box of nickels is way heavier than a $25 box of cents... I can barely pick one up one-handed

Hoard now and hold on!

You should of used peanut butter jars and mayo jars they have plastic lids. I get 2 1/2 and 5 gal buckets from my local pool supply store and they have lids that screw on with a locking device on them (the clorine tablets come in them they always have a pile to throw away) i imagine you could grese the threads before closing the lid and bury them

Cupro-nickel alloy (25%nickel/75%copper) is used on salt-water immersion fitting on ships. Unless your ground water is saltwater, you are not going to experience significant corrosion in less than several centuries.

Buckle up - it makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car.

Actually the buckets are HDPE-Colored as opposed to HDPE-Natural for milk jugs.

If your percentages are low.. just sort more. If your percentages are high.. just sort more.

Now selling Copper pennies. 1.6x plus shipping. Limited amounts available.

Thanks for the replies -- good info.

Okay, now let's say my jar lids rust through after 3.3 years, and a small amount of moisture gets into a few of my jars of nickels...

Do nickels rust? Or corrode?? As much as steel or worse?? I know they're 75% copper and 25% nickel, right? Is it a copper sandwich, with nickel on the outside? Or is it an alloy mixture throughout? What will happen to my bright shiny beauties after Mr. Rain gets through to them??




They should not rust or corrode except under extreme circumstances, given that the alloy which comprises nickels is also used for maritime vessels.
