I often received assorted mail in flat rate VHS videotape-size USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes. I found that these will hold 27 rolls of nickels.
Not near as heavy as a .30 caliber ammo can when full.
Folks (like me, over 60 and female) that find the .30 cal ammo cans a bit heavy might like to use these boxes. I just use strapping tape and run a band around the box horizontally, fill it with the nickels and then run two bands of tape around it to seal it. They stack nicely and I can move them with ease. – P.W.
