As it turned out, it was from 2003... but the CHANCE that I could have recieved a future nickel was worth the money!
Oh, future nickel, I'll have you yet...
"I got a nickel, I got a nickel, I got a nickel! Hey, hey, hey, hey!"
But I want to emphasize that this is a great product. I own several nickels myself, and find that they constantly come in handy.
I would have given it 5 stars, but the seller doesn't promise that the nickel would in fact be from 2003. Though, this could be good or bad. If you were to get a nickel from 2012, its worth is only the equivalent of 5.1 cents. However, if you were luck and got a nickel from say the 1950's it could purchase a gallon of gas (I just paid over $4.00 for a gallon last night).
Ultimately, probability would state that since there are far many more nickels from prior to 2003, and inflation is constantly increasing, which would make this a stellar investment over time. Of course, there is the possibility that the seller is scamming me by sending a great 2003 nickel on first purchase, and will send only new nickels with future orders. But, I can't believe that anyone who would sell used nickels on Amazon for 15 cents a-piece would be so dishonest as to scam people in this terrible economy.
I'm going to quit my job so that I can cash out my 401k and invest that money in used nickels from the past. However, you may want to check with your accountant first before joining me. I don't know what the tax rate on profiting from past purchasing power lost through economic history is, but I figure it has to be lower than earnings on actual work performed.
A warning to you all.
No picture means NO PRODUCT.
After shelling out $2.77 PLUS $8 for shipping (!), I was told that the item was no longer available. Did I get my money back? NO.
A word to the wise, if someone is offering you a nickel from 2003 (as if they even MADE them that year), ask to see a photo first.
What makes this even more tragic is that this is the exact piece I need to complete my collection of coins. I currently have a penny:2004, a dime:1998 (awesome!), and a quarter:2006. This nickel would complete my collection, but alas, it does not exist.
This may be the same jerk who told me that he had a DOLLAR coin for sale too. AS IF..! Like they're going to make a dollar coin. They already have those, moron, they're called DOLLAR BILLS. I was about to give him the 47 cents he wanted for it until, ONCE AGAIN, no photo..
My search continues for a nickel. I don't even care about the year anymore. People like this just ruin it for us serious collectors.
The minute I got it, I noticed that this was actually a COUNTERFEIT 2003 nickel! It was actually from 2002, but the ending "2" had simply been scratched off with pen and the "3" had been drawn on with permanent marker!
That wasn't even the worst part. How many things could go wrong with one nickel? Well, it turns out that this Nickel had been being used by criminals throughout the world, and that when I went to use it, a "Red Flag" went out to the CIA, and I was immediately arrested and put into jail for a week.
That STILL isn't the bad part. When I got out of jail, the nickel began to DETERIORATE in my hands! I had never been so annoyed in my life.
After paying $5.00 shipping (Plus $12 more for Overnight Express), and $14.32 for the actual nickel (I believe there has been a price drop now), I would have expected more...but I guess not all things are as good as what they say to be.
I WOULD highly recommend the "2002 Penny", as it IS what they say it to be. This so-called "Nickel" doesn't even deserve a place in the US currency.

I love the idea and have to admit that the chance of getting a coin from the future is well worth the risk. You may receive a spike in sales due to imgurPublished on December 24, 2013 by James Bielby
This nickel did not, in fact, taste minty at all. Needless to say, I was infuriated about this less than satisfactory transaction.Published on December 23, 2013 by Zachary Arostegui
