About This Item


Congratulations!  You have found one of the WORLD FAMOUS Germany Bert Wooden Nickel Travel Bugs!!  My mission is move from cache to cache as quickly as possible.

Please do not keep me since I want to travel far and wide!

If the wooden nickel on this travel bug is missing please contact my owner for a replacement.

Wooden Nickels are part of American history.  If an American says to you, "Don't take any wooden nickles", what they mean is be careful of someone trying to rip you off by giving you something worthless.

Wooden Nickels though are not always worthless.  In the use they are sometimes given away as a promotion for a product and the wooden nickel is used as a discount coupon.

Wooden nickels have also been used as real money in the USA for short periods of time.
