(Bear Country Vintage Pressed Penny - Elongated Coin from Disneyland Park) BEAR COUNTRY, Big Al playing guitar, solid bear, large image, © DISNEY DISNEYLAND. See DL0006 and DN0005 in the DN Prototype Elongated Coin Guide for small differences.

Acknowledged as the second Disneyland "on-stage" elongated coin. Die and machine by Centek. First on-stage in June 1987. Off stage October 1987. Design is similar to DL0006, but larger, with the most notable differences being a solid, versus outlined bear. Note gripper slot is on the right side.
The DL0001 and DL0002 dies proved too soft and were easily damaged. Subsequently, the dies were returned to Centek and replaced with harder DL0005 and DL0006 dies featuring 1/8" smaller engraved images. (Per Robert Hoff's 1990's interview with the person in charge of Centek at the time of the die replacements.)
