"D" is for Disneyland!


D for Disneyland near coin gripSome onstage Disneyland pressed pennies now feature a script "D" for Disneyland! ParkPennies.com readers may recall that the "D" was first noticed replacing the Eurolink "e" on special event dies, engraved inside the park by Disneyland Cast Members. Now even some onstage coins feature this new initial. Rumors suggest that this change is evidence of Disneyland's efforts to return to the "Disney quality" of engraving that has set Disneyland elongated coins apart from "less artistic" pressed pennies.
As collectors and guests have mentioned to ParkPennies.com over the past couple of years, some Eurolink dies appear to have been engraved by a CNC machine rather than the talented hand of Mr. Jimmy Vargas, the well respected engraver for Eurolink Design Inc. We are very happy to see that the Finding Nemo replacement set, DL0477-479 pictured below, features good quality "three dimensional engraving" (high relief devices) ... Thankfully not the controversial, poor quality CNC engraving that has snuck into Disneyland here and there. Still, given Disneyland isn't just any amusement park, we'll side with ParkPennies.com visitors that hope the artistry of Mr. Vargas will eventually return full time to Disneyland elongated coins. (Pictured to the left: New "D" for Disneyland! )
Happy Collecting, Boomer

NOTE: You may have noticed that because backstamp "dies" and coin dies are different in many ways, they are treated differently here at ParkPennies. Guides confirm that unlike coin dies, backstamp “dies” often share a single design / artwork "type" pressed onto the reverse of many different elongated coins. When these backstamp "dies" are compared to others of the same design "type", often there are slight differences as each is etched or engraved individually. To mix things up even more, it is possible for a set of three nearly identical backstamp "dies" engraved on a back shaft and paired with particular coin dies, to be accidentally or intentionally rotated when the penny press mechanism is serviced or repaired. And even more permutations are introduced if a replacement back shaft is installed with facsimiles of the original backstamp engravings. Lastly, backstamp engravings are also prone to change in appearance over time as they wear, "sink" etc., which can add variations to the same back stamp engravings over time. As you can see, these backstamp characteristics could make for a lot of “different” backstamps of the same design "type". Therefore, our guide attributions give small design variations or changes less weight when observed in backstamp "dies" vs. obverse coin dies. A good example would be the many 50th Anniversary backstamps. There are as many individual backstamp "dies" or engravings as there are coins in the 50th set, each with slight variances in placement, depth, and texture. Yet all share the same artwork / design, i.e. without intentional differences in design, and are considered one “generic type” for the purposes of listing in this guide.

Editor's note: We are often reminded that the preferred numismatic term is "Elongated Coins". However, as the rebellious, risk taking, devil may care ParkPennies.com contributors that we are, temptation often gets the better of us. As a result, you may see the more casual, fun terms like: pressed pennies, pressed nickels, pressed dimes, pressed quarters, smashed pennies, flattened pennies, crushed pennies, squashed pennies, rolled pennies, mashed pennies, stamped pennies, smushed pennies, stretched pennies, memory pennies, keepsake pennies, flattened pennies, and souvenir coin medallions to describe these fun pressed coin souvenirs. :-)
