A simple experimental method for measuring the anomalous skin depth and Fermi velocity in metals is presented. The skin depth is evaluated by measuring the resistance at 77 K of a thick metal wire specimen at frequencies of 100 Hz and 0.1 MHz. The Fermi velocity is obtained by using the theoretical expression that relates the anomalous skin depth to the Fermi velocity.
