@Nickelcollectr85 @Conder101

From another source, it is estimated that he made a few hundred thousand of these, so in all fairness, it looks like he made a pretty good profit. (At the scale of a few decent houses' worth if he managed to keep all of the profit).

With that said, I would think someone who is that skilled in counterfeiting would at least make $5 bills or something... That's a lot of nickels to take to the bank (I read that he took them a few rolls at a time), and a lot of risk to take on each one for only $4-8 each trip. Unless, that is, he did make other stuff and only got caught on the nickels...

@Nickelcollectr85 Is that an NGC holder in your picture? It definitely looks like one. If so, I'm surprised that they'd take these.

Msl2196 the coin case I have is a 3 piece case I've ordered off eBay for a few bucks a piece. You order them by the mm size of coin They are very similar to the NGC/PCGS hard shell cases. I've heard if you send henning into the NGC company they will not grade them and return with a tag or paper notation explaining this item is a known contemporary counterfeit. I've also read in a thread somewhere else there is another lower name grading company that will actually grade henning nickels but due to the coin being cast counterfeited off worn nickels the grades arent ever going to be high numbers also grading is to determine a value on the item it doesn't seem practical to spend the cash since there's no really know mint history value.
