Ah, I remember this from my numismatic boyhood. The other claim to fame for this nickel was that the first year it was produced it did not say "cents" on the back - just a big V for five. Some folks began gold plating the nickel to pass it off as a five dollar gold piece. LOL

Makes me want to dig out the old blue Whitman folders...

Is this the Trillion dollar Obama nickel that will magically solve our nation's never ending fiscal crisis?

Doesn't that make the jelly taste funny?

Funny you said that, it really does have a bad smell when you open them.

Plus it makes your change all sticky. Maybe you should think about using empty jars instead.

I used to look at them with my kids when they were little. If I ever have grandkids I'll do the same with them.
