This is a squished penny swap! We will send two partners one squished penny each.

Please tape the penny inside a card so the envelope doesn't rip!

To find the penny squishing machines in your area, see the following link: http://www.pennycollector.com/AreaList.aspx

This is international due to the low shipping costs.

Rating must be 4.8 and above.

Happy penny squishing!

Penny squishing tip: Serious collectors will use pennies minted prior to 1982 because after 1982 the mint began to use a percentage of 99.2% zinc with a 0.8% copper - coating. In pre-1982 pennies that percentage was 95% copper, 5% zinc.

Although it is difficult to tell the difference between the two, it becomes more obvious once the penny is elongated. The elongation process will reveal the zinc below the copper and many collectors find the appearance of zinc in the design detracting from the design of the die itself.
