As a 5 Eurocent, and US nickel are the same diameter, I wanted to figure out if they would both work. 5 cent press in Holland.

I tried a pretty worn war nickel, I wanted to see how it would turn out. Unfortunately it rotated slightly more than I wanted it too, but all in all it worked pretty well. The nickel is slightly thicker, hence its a bit longer. Some cracks developed, likely due to the brittleness of the manganese.
