You don't have tourist attractions or zoos near your area? Check www.pennycollector.com for where they might be, if you want to join the swap later.

The best pennies to use are pre 1982. The zinc in the newer pennies leave silver streaks that tarnish to black and are difficult to shine.

There's also many of those pennies for sale on eBay, too. Just search elongated penny there. You'll be amazed as I was.
