Nickles are rare these days. If you’re digging through your change in an effort to pay $1.08 for something, it may be hard to find a nickle. Worse than rarity, to me, is the fact that nickles and quarters look so much alike now. It’s hard to tell them apart. I have a peculiar affection for nickles, because when I was very young I could take a nickle down the block to the El Capitan Hotel in my home town of Rocky Ford and buy a package of Juicy Fruit gum or a Milky Way bar. Like many things in life, those days are long gone.
