    I still stack copper cents and all nickels. Why? They are the only U.S. money with intrinsic value which is reason enough for me. I've got a five gallon bucket of rolls of cents and a couple of buckets of rolls of nickels. My favorites are a few rolls of Wheaties. Still turn one up every so often.

    Nickel is the war metal. Highly recommended to have at least one major miner of the stuff as well.

    Been stacking nickels and the miners since 89. Hasn't really paid off let, but that's a good thing, cause once it does, ah...

    Once I even had a real nickel mining claim. Not many know that during ww2 we was even mining nickel in N.Cal. at one time it was paying better than the gold mines.
    Small business is the incubator of employment. As it declines, so too do opportunities for first jobs, second chances and economic independence.

    I do remember that, do any still do that?
    Wanna have some fun:
    Load up some silver coins into your pocket and begin the jiggling in a crowd
    It's fascinating, people will always look around, always one or two will begin to look around to see where that silver sound is coming from

    It seems to be a part of some peoples nature, they are not always aware of what they're looking around for, but they do understand they're hearing something special

    Any tips on how/where to store a few hundred rolls of nickles?

    Five gallon buckets in the basement is my storage plan. No one finds them interesting. I had a couple of high school aged boys move us when we moved two years ago. They handled buckets off copper and nickel with no interest whatsoever, in fact they thought I was nuts. I moved guns, ammo and pm myself under cover of darkness so they would not be able to report their existence to anyone. They viewed the cents and nickels like rocks.

    A bucket would be hard to move and if plastic the bottom can tear out. I use 30 cal ammo cans.

    I like the bucket idea. Heavy to carry, so less likely to walk-off too easily.

    Perhaps sealing the lids with a strong adhesive would make them less likely to be discovered for what they are?

    Banks put $200 in nickels in a plastic bag from the coin counter machine. Good for the bottom layer of something you might want to make heavier.

    Yes, a bucket is hard to move. No, the bottom won't tear out, but there is a danger of the handle brackets breaking. Gotta move with care. Ammo cans? Every time I get one it fills with ammo, just like magic.
