I dont have any sadly but Im curious to see some Nickel Plated collections…

So I was looking at some diff collections, 28 stories collection, hulk smash collection. One that I am quite surprised that I havent seen yet is a Nickel Plated collection, there has to be some people that have them, I was thinking about possibly collecting the Nickel plated One Drops then I realized that I have none of them and there were more models than I previously thought.

So are these all the Nickel Plated One Drop Yoyos? Lmk if there are more…

Markmont Project
M1
Dingo
Y-Factor
Markmont Next
54
Wooly Markmont
Code 1
Dietz
Cafe Racer
Dang
Burnside
Code 2
Cascade
Yelets?
Summit
Chik?
Format C
Benchmark O, V, H
Valor

I know there are some special editions of non One Drops like “Nickel plated Chief” but I think I got all of them on this list…

Lets see what you got!! I will post pictures if I ever get any Nickel plated yoyos, so far I dont own any!

WOW!!! THERE IT IS! Someone with an awesome Nickel plated collection. I will try and fail miserably at naming them…

Top: Wooly Markmont? Markmont Next?
2nd: Looks like 2 Projects to me!
3rd: Cafe Racer, Markmont Next, Project 2
4th: 54, Dang, Yelets, Y-Factor, Burnside, Code 1?

Tried doing it without looking anything up on google, Im sure pretty much all of them are wrong! A profile shot would have helped me get a few more of them I bet!

Cant wait to see your “updated nickel collection” That collection looks really sweet already!!

Ps: Your Pacman machine?? That would be really awesome if it was! =)

#14

So, 3 years, and this happened.



#15

The “Dang” is actually a Dietz


#16

Oh, what? I actually knew that, they don’t even look similar.


#17

Hahah, I wonder how many I actually got right. I was trying to go from memory and not look on google or anything. Dont use mine as a reference!


#18

Does that tarnish always happen? Or you can prevent it by polishing? Do you need a special kind of cream or something when you polish it or just a cloth? With some water or dry?


#19

I only looked up the M1. I thought I wrote Dietz, I must have been thinking ahead.


#20

No, that tarnish doesn’t always happen. I used some brass polish on my old nickel Summit before giving it away. I used a Dish towel and Brass Polish, nothing else.
