Chalk it up to my incurable anality, but "nick...L E" drives me CARZY! (I know)


We, as important, educated, good looking, discerning, tasteful, intelligent, respectable, astute, mature, courageous, outstanding, valuable NUMISMATISTS must educate and preserve and protect our impeccable reputations.


And typing "NICKLE" won't do it.


It's a ....... NICKEL !!!!!!


If Jefferson was a full bust, he would have a NICK on his EL bow.


Please? huh? C'mon.


Thank you for your kind attention. I will now return to my philatelic PREFORATION/PERFORATION encyclopedia that I am writing.

Bless your heart, Count... did I say nickle????

I don't think I'll ever be able to look at a nickel the same again? Nevermind Jefferson's elbow.

Nickel has been PROVEN to be carcinogenic.


If you have any nickels, they are not safe to handle.


It is advised that carcinogenic nickels be disposed of as quickly as possible to avoid public health issues.


A nickel recycler is the best place to dump them.


I recommend "Erfit's Nasty Nickel Disposal Service"

They are located at POB 8724, Citrus Heights, CA 95621


Send any quanity postpaid and you will be doing a good thing.
