With permission from the gracious Mechabecca, this swap will be for pressed pennies.

Pressed penny machines are often found in tourist spots. All you have to do is place two quarters and one penny (pre-1982 pennies yield best results due to their copper composition) into the machine and crank to your heart's delight! Pressed pennies can be considered a form of "exonumia" (coin-like objects such as token coins and medals, and other items used in place of legal currency or for commemoration).

You will have two (2) partners in total and you will send each partner one (1) pressed penny.

If you're looking for a penny machine near you, here is a list:


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

The small print: (i) this is a US SWAPPER PREFERENCE swap (as penny machines that use US coins are concentrated in the US). If you are an INTERNATIONAL SWAPPER and believe you would be able to comply with the requirements, please contact me via swapbot form first; (ii) newbies more than welcome, as long as you contact me via swap-bot form first and have a reasonably well-filled out profile; (iii) all others, please have a rating of at least 4.8.

If you have concerns with the requirements, please touch base with me and I am sure we can work something out.

Oh wow! I absolutely LOVE pressed pennies... :) My husband laughs that they're the best collectible imaginable, since they are tiny AND cheap. If you get me for your partner, let me know if you have any preferences, and I'll see what I can do. No promises, but I'll accommodate if I can!
