    none silver coins aging process???

    Since the common Eisenhower Dollar has no silver, putting bleach on copper/nickel will make some funky colors. There is no simple or easy household item to turn this dark. I can suggest baking it in the oven. Yes. In the oven. That should darken it some. Otherwise, normal hand use will dark them...

    Can't Find Provider

    It really depends on exactly what you want. For an expanded shell, there are many made by many companies and people. If you want high quality, Lassen or Schoolcraft. If you want good quality machined products, go for Johnson or Tango. I really wouldn't suggest buying anything less in quality...
