Hollow Nickels

Submitted by:
Just want to give a heads up on the hollow nickels from Shomer-Tec. I recently purchased one, and while it is of excellent quality, the nickel (even with a memory card inside) is MUCH lighter in weight than a regular nickel. I'm sure this wouldn't be an issue if the coin was mixed in with others, but if someone were to examine the nickel by itself (especially next to a regular one for comparison), it would be obvious that there is something "special" about it. There is a bit of empty space in the nickel with a memory card inside of it, so it's possible that a small piece of lead or gold could be placed inside to increase the weight. The only problem with this is that the nickel would "rattle" when shook. Hope this helps...
