This is the second pressed penny swap! Soon we'll have a collection!

I collect pressed pennies (also called elongated cents) and thought it would be fun to swap some. They make great souviniers from the places you've been. Pressed penny machines can be found in almost any touristy place. Most towns have one. (Check at a local museam or if you live in a really big city, tourist shops)

I'm proposing to swap 1 pressed penny with 5 partners. That way, you only need to find 1 penny pressing machine and press 5 pennies. It only cost 51 cents per a pressed penny. make sure the pennies are pre-1982 pennies to get an optimum press. If you would like to include a little write up about the engraving on the penny to explain where it came from and etc. that would be great. Good Luck! Have i forgotten anything? let me know! This is most likely a US and Canada swap. but if anyone from europe etc. wants to join write me. Must have at least a 4.5 to participate. talk to me if other. newbies welcome!

If you are from the last swap and receive the same partner, please send your partner a different design penny. you might want to keep track of your partners for future pressed penny swaps.

Yay!!!! I was going to start a swap to trade these...I saw the one you did awhile ago, whimzee, when I was looking at your profile recently (for a postcard swap prolly)...and I went to that pennycollector.com site, and I now have another collecting addiction. Heh. Swap-bot has turned me into a collector of postcards, ATCs, stickers, kawaii, vintage ephemera, and now, squished pennies. Well, at least I had the yarn addiction before I got here.

Anyway. I live in a very good touristy state/city (colorado springs, CO/manitou springs, CO) so if there are requests for ones here, let me know.

This site has locations of the machines and descriptions of what you can get, as well as tips for getting good imprints:
