You know the ones I'm talking about! Where you insert a penny along with an X amount of quarters, & out comes a transformed penny! Usually with a souvenir-ish logo.

So in this swap, we will send 1 penny to each of our 2 partners :)

As far as I know, they are in most places in the USA. Mostly found in a tourist places, sometimes just by a liquor store, or any random place.

International, since this will be very light to mail. But then again I don't think other countries have these... Well just in case, this is international. For swappers with a rating of 4.5 or above. Newbies welcome with fully filled out profiles.

Have fun! if you have any questions, just ask me.

Thanks TeraBAcat! I wonder if they use US pennies for the international ones, or do they use their own coins?

Pretty dumb question though.

OOoo..I just had to sign up! My brother loves these, he has a collection going. I always make one for him every time I see a machine (because honestly, what else am I going to do with all my change?).

I found a penny squishing machine in China!!!!! No kidding. Except, it squished their money (yuan) instead. I want to join but I don't know where in the world I would find a machine here in Little Rock! If I find one, I'll join. I have two little books of them but no extras! It's kinda like a "penny" journal of where I've been.

Wow, I've never heard of these before, and I've never seen one of those machines in Canada so I won't be able to join the swap unfortunately:( But Wwen I first saw the swap titled I was reminded of how me and my cousins used to press pennies and other coins, we'd go to the train tracks and wait for a train to come along and as it was coming we'd lay our coins on the train track and leave a marker to remember where they were and when the train drove over the coins they'd be pressed flat, the only problem is finding them once the train has passed. Still a very interesting pass time, maybe I should start a swap for those type of pressed coins, I'm sure I'm not the only kid who did this.

Stavi G - Ooh awesome! i go to china every summer. I'll have to look out for that!

pinkflamingo - Wow, do the coins come out with train tracks on them? That's a neat idea! but i suspect that the penny might not be in the place where you had put it, though :P
