Date: 19 Jun 1997 08:28:22 -0700 (PDT)

Hello everyone!

In order to get things going here I thought I'd post my list of
TOP TEN PLACES THAT SHOULD HAVE A PENNY MACHINE, BUT DON'T (as far as I
know).

1) The Squished Penny Museum
2) The White House
3) The TransAmerica Building (San Francisco)
4) Jack London Square (Oakland)
5) Kelly Park and Petting Zoo (San Jose)
6) The SF Bay Bridge (The Golden Gate has several!)
7) The US Mint (all of them)
8) The Lincoln Memorial
9) Every Airport
10) The Elongated Coin Mailing List!!!!!

What do you think? I'd love to see your Top Ten list, or even just a
few idea submissions.

Peace,
Aahz

Subject: (elongates) questions about enlongated coins from Disney Land
Date: 19 Jun 1997 11:51:27 -0700

Hi,

I am new on this list so, I apologize in advance if I am bringing up
non-relavent or over discussed topics.

I would like to build a "complete" collection of the enlongated coins
you can make using the elongating machines at Disneyland, CA. (I live
in the area and have an annual passport)

So I was wondering about a few things.

1) Does any one already have a list of where the machines are located at
DL.

2) How can I best insure quality of the enlongated cents? Should I
polish
the cents before enlongating them?

I have already discovered that I should not use cents after 1982
because of the Zinc.

I was toying with idea of polishing some very worn Idian Head Cents,
and using those as my "planchets". It might also be interesting to
use some foriegn coins.

3) Does anyone have any ideas on how to store and display the elongated
cents?

Thanks,
Wayne

If you polish them clean, you may not be able to tell that is was an
Indian Cent after you roll it... The dirt on the coin is what enables
one to still see the coin's original image after rolling.

TEC offers 2x2 elongated coin holders for sale. The more you buy, the
cheaper they become... I think at most they are four cents each. These
2x2s fit very nicely in 20-pocket album pages, which fit into standard
3-ring binders. The elongated 2x2s are available only from TEC (as far
as I know), the 20-pocket pages are available thru TEC or most any coin
shop in the country.

If you are not familiar with TEC, check out their information at:

Don't forget to bring a few nickels and quartes as well!
Friendly reminder: Get extras and you'll have people (myself
included) knocking down your door to trade with you.

There's a list on the web, but I don't have the address handy,
I'm sure someone will post it, though.

Indian head cents would make for a very interesting reverse.
However, don't clean them first, or you'll entirely lose the image. I
would recommend you use coins (Indian or otherwise) that are well aged,
but with the image still visible, and no serious variations in coloring.
Another tip: run a test cent thru the machine first (noting it's
orientation in the machine) to check which side the image will be printed
on. Even machines by the same company will vary from machine to
machine. I'd recommend you use pre-82 cents from circulation for the
tests as they're FAR less expensive. You can always offer these test
runs up for trade!

The best way to store elongates that I've found are the 2x2s
available from TEC. As for display, several people use screw down
plastic surrency holders or sport card holders. These work well in that
you can include a note or photograph with the coins.

Greetings!

I recently received a large lot of elongates whic included a coin
whose origin/purpose I cannot determine. Can anyone help?

The image is vertical and appears to be a waterfall, although I
suppose it COULD be some type of tree/bush. On the left of the image are
three Japanese(?) characters in a vertical banner. It has the initials
FB in the border at the top, and I assume these stand for Frank
Brazzell. Does anyone know why this elongate was issued?

Peace,

This coin has the initials RR in the border. These initials

Director of TEC.

This coin has the initials JD in the border. I don't know who
this is, but the same initials in the same style are on several machines
at Paramount's Great America in Santa Clara, CA. I believe these are San
Francisco Penny Machine COmpany machines.

I haven't seen this coin (yet), but I believe that Eurolink
advertises on their website that they have the contract for machine at
all Six Flags parks.

Again, I'm not certain, but I believe Jeff Dixon said these came
from Eurolink machines. Are you out there to confirm this, Jeff?

This is a San Francisco Penny Machine Company machine.

As stated above, "RR" stands for Rocky Rockholt

W.C.M. is William C. Massey, better known as Willy. He's the
owner/founder/operator (Sorry, Willy, not sure what title you prefer) of
Luck 'E' Penny

> 0248-CHH-Our Father Prayer "FB"

"FB" are the initials of Frank Brazzell. Frank was one of the
most prodigious modern rollers. He cut the dies and did the rolling for
numerous other people's designs as well as his own.

Hope this info helps someone.

Hmmm....That seems strange. I wonder how a Florida engraver ended up
doing work for a machine company in Northern California. It's not that I
doubt you, Willy, but I want to make sure we're all talking about the
same guy. The coins w/ JD that I have are all Dotted border with the J
interrupting the border on one side and the D doing the same opposite.
Is this how Jim marks his dies?
If so, do you possibly have his address? The San Francisco Penny
Machine COmpany has been incredibly closed mouth about ANYTHING related
to their business. Perhaps Jim can provide some details on the machines
at Paramount's Great America. If you're not comfortable giving out his
address, could you possibly send him mine? I would really like to get in
touch with him.

Willy's recent post on Carl's behalf sparked something in my mind
(yep, those two remaining brain cells still work occaisonally 8-).

I'm going to a coin show sponsored by the Vallejo Coin Club on
Sunday. I have no idea how large the show is, or if there will be ANY
elongates there, but I'm hopeful. If there are any particular elongates
that you are searching for let me know (along with a rough price
estimate) and I will keep an eye out at the show. If you know the
Dow-Martin #s, you can just send those, otherwise as accurate a
description as you have.

Well, I finally finished up my latest trade list. I've split it
up into 5 different messages due to its size. If you'd like a complete
copy in one message, just e-mail me.

Aahz' Elongates Trade List
Updated: 06/21/97

Chris Aahz
925 Ravenscourt Ave #2
San Jose, CA 95128

Aahz@svpal.org

Most of my elongates were purchased for the approximate issue
price of 50c, however, some cost me more. As a result I have come up
with a UNIT designation for each item on the list. The UNIT level is
set at MY COST. There is not a profit margin built in for trades. I have
designated one UNIT to equal one currently available elongate. So, if an
item is listed as 3 UNITs, then my asking 'price' is 3 currently available
elongates. If you have older elongates to trade, then I'm sure we can
agree on something that is fair. The UNIT designation is basically a
starting point. If you prefer purchase over trade, then consider 1
UNIT to equal 75c.

As I have multiple copies of many I can't describe condition
here. If condition is an issue, let me know in your trade request and I
will do my best to explain on the items you're interested in.

My wants at this time are:
1) Prison Tokens
2) Elongates w/ the Lord's Prayer
3) Elongates w/ the 10 Commandments
4) Elongates from/relating to San Francisco
5) Tourist Location Elongates
6) Souvenir Coins/Tokens/Encased Coins/Wooden Nickels
7) Store Card Elongates
8) TEC Elongates
9) Coin Club/Show Elongates
10) Elongates on Foreign Coins
11) Halloween Elongates
12) Humorous/Oddball Items

If you're looking for something I don't have, let me know and
I'll keep my eyes open. I love to trade, so negotiating is not a
problem.

Subject: (elongates) Steel Elogates.
Date: 24 Jun 1997 16:59:43 -0400

Anyone out there have any experience using 1943 steel cents in squashing
machines?

I have a couple steel elongates that I sent away for. The detail is very
good. I am curious about using them in various machines in my area.
However, I don't want to be the one to break the rolling press at a
tourist attraction. The steel in 1943 cents should not be a whole lot
harder than the copper in pre-'82 copper cents. But like I said: I
don't want to be the one to break the machine.

Also, here's a way to clean copper cents without going farther than the
kitchen. Put one or two teaspoonfuls on salt in a cup of white vinegar.
Stir and ropn in pennies. It makes a mild acid bath. Should work
pretty well... DON'T do this with collector quality coins!!!

See ya.

There are actually 2 different Mickey Mouse coins:

one is of Mickey in a sorcerer hat holding a magic wand over the "25" =
and stars are circling the "25"

the second is of Mickey standing under the "25" with the same sorcerer =

I was just out 'surfing' and ran across a dealer selling an
elongate some of you may be interested in. I know there's a few World's
Fair Collectors out there:

"1904 Elongated Indian Cent from The St. Louis World's Fair
'Palace of Electricity'" The asking price is $20.00 which is out of my
price range.

Subject: (elongates) Free Elongates!
Date: 24 Jun 1997 22:45:24 -0700 (PDT)

Greetings & Salutations!

Okay, I've been sitting here, mulling over David's recent request
for free elongates. I must say, to start out with, that the whole
concept of kids ASKING for free stuff just because they're kids has
always annoyed me. I believe that if people desire to donate items to
young collectors they will simply do so, and always find it hard to give
to those who contniually ask. However, that's just my opinion, and I
hope none of you will hold it against me that I'm an old grouch 8-)

Anywayz, David did give me an idea!

Since this list is new and I really have no idea how to get the
word out to prospective subscribers I am going to make an offer. If you
enjoy the list, then tell people you talk to elongates about it. If
they're interested tell them to send an introductory message to the list
about themselves and their collections after subscribing. If they
mention who referred them to the list, then I will send that person (the
one who did the referring) a couple of coins from my trade stock (my choice).

There you go, something for nothing! And it will enrich both the
list and the hobby at the same time!

Peace,

Aahz

I had asked this question on the old Penny Page Message Board,
and Kathy put it in the new FAQ, but still no answer. Then it shows up
here. So, I decided to take matters in my own hands. I had stopped by
the Winchester Mystery House to replenish my trade stock on Sunday, but
their machines were still down. I was informed that the repair man was
due to repair them on Wednesday. Today being Wednesday, I swung by the
Winchester Mystery House to give a steel cent a try, knowing that if I
DID jam the machine, the repair man would be there later in the day. And
the results are....

It works fine! This was a Eurolink machine, and it handled the
steel cent just as well as it does a copper. I even rolled a copper at
right afterwards as a control group. The two coins are virtually
identical in size, which implies that the steel is basically the same
density/hardness/wahtever as the copper. Now we know!

When I get a chance to check out a SFPMC machine I'll let y'all know.

Peace,

Aahz

Subject: (elongates) "Yesterday's Elongateds"
Date: 25 Jun 1997 22:12:17 -0700 (PDT)

Greetings & Salutations!

I recently purchased the book, "Yesterday's Elongateds" by Lee
Martin and Dottie Dow. I bought the book from Rich Hartzog and paid
$44.50. I must say that, for me, it was well worth the money. I thought
that I would share with all of you my impressions of this book.

At first glance the book is somewhat imposing, 328 pages, 293 of
which are filled with photos and descriptions of elongates. There are
only a few pages of general information, although I found the historical
information very interesting. If you collect World's Fair issues, or any
of the coins issued pre-1965, then this book is a must have. Nearly
everyone of the 1000s of elongates has a photograph accompanying the
detailed descriptions. Included are variations that would easily slip by
unnoticed if you did not know what you were looking for.
However, if you are a casual collector, or someone who primarily
collects modern souvenir issues, then the book will have essentially no
value for you. This is not a criticism of the work, simply a statement
of fact. The book sets out to cover the early era of elongates
(1893-1965) and does an exceptional job. They even list rarity for each
coin. The price ranges listed may not reflect the current market, but
the fact that they are RANGES, so the information is still useful when
used to determine relative value.

I hope these relatively disjointed thoughts will be of use to someone.

Peace,

Aahz

Greetings,

I received an elongate in change (the Oregon coin mentioned on my web
site). My wife found one in a "take a penny" dish at a Duncan Donuts
shop in Connecticut. This is rare, but they do circulate from time to
time. They should still be leagal tender. It is up to individuals if
they will accept them or not.

Subject: (elongates) Vallejo Coin Show
Date: 29 Jun 1997 15:19:10 -0700 (PDT)

Greetings & Salutations!

Wow, this was NOT a good weekend for my bank balance! I spent
Saturday vampire hunting at the Humdinger Toy Show. Got some great
stuff, but spent about $50 more then I had planned to. Today was the
Vallejo Coin Club's annual coin show and I spent an extra $75-$100! ACK!

Anywayz, the show was much better then I expected. There were
about two dozen tables and seven of them had some elongates. I bought a
few from everyone that had some and a lot from the two dealers that had
moderns. Most of the relevant dealers had between 5 and 15 elongates,
mostly World's Fair and priced between $6 and $20 each. EVERY one of
them had some 1933 and 1939 WFs. So, I guess if you collect these two
fairs, pickings should be anything but slim.

One dealer had about 20 1893 Columbian elongates for an average
of $10, but I didn't get any as his was the last table I went to and I
spent what little cash I had left on a few Golden Gate Expos.

Of the two dealers that had moderns, one had 40, mostly coins
shows with some souvenirs and the rest mixed. Prices: $1-$2. I bought
25 of his 40! The other dealer had a binder of a couple hundred
moderns at a buck each. They had purchased them from an estate. I bought
about 50 from them, mainly store/personal cards and a few souvenirs.
Most of what I left behind were Brazzell rolls and some souvenirs I
already have.

I picked up several World's Fair issues for you WF fans. I will
be posting a list in the next few hours. I need to sell/trade these
ASAP. As I said before I spent way too much and since I don't collect WF
I'm hoping they can find a home soon.

Unfortunately, there weren'y any of the Charleston Expos that
Willy asked about. I did look, they just weren't there.

Guess that's about it, overall I had a lot of fun. Met two other
elongate collectors who may be showing up on the list soon. Admission to
the show was free, but it still cost me about $12 between gas, parking
and the bridge toll. Not bad. I'm happy 8-)

Peace,

Aahz

Greetings & Salutations!

Okay, I've got six World's Fair issues that I picked up at the
coin show today. They're listed below with the price I paid for them.
As always, I'm not looking for a profit, I do this for pleasure. I just
like knowing that people are adding to their collections as I add to
mine. The only trades I'm considering on these coins at this time are
OLD San Francisco issues, Columbian Expo, or other elongates that are of
relatively equal value. If I don't move all of these, then they will be
added to my next trade list and assigned a UNIT value. Cash offers equal
to my cost are fine, but I can't do any "package deals" or anything to
lower the price, as the prices listed are my actual cost.

Here they are:

ILL-CPIE-22 h. Building w/ flagpole to right, "Republic of China
1933/A Century of Progress. Chicago." Rope Border --- $6.00

ILL-CPIE-33a h. Italian Pavilion, "Italian Pavilion/A Century of
Progress/Souvenir/Chicago/19/33" Rope Border --- $6.00

ILL-CPIE-93 h. Angle view of skyride w/ railroad yard and parking
lot in background, "World's Fair/Skyride/Chicago 1933" Dot border --- $6.00

N.Y-PAE-14 v. Temple, "Temple of Music/Pan American/Exposition/
1901" Rolled border --- $9.00

N.Y-WF(2)-5 h. Vatican pavilion, "New York/19/64/Worlds Fair" <on
1960 Canadian nickel> --- $5.00

N.Y-WF(2)-8 v. N.Y. State Pavilion, "New York/19/64/Worlds Fair"

Hi Janelle!

I would like a set from Mall of America on pre-'82 cents if it can be done?
I live near Disneyland and would be happy to trade any of the Disney

Bob,

Try your local Home Depot or Orchard Supply Hardware. Tell them
what you want to do, and they can probably help you out. I believe,
although I could be way off base here, that there are simple metal
punches available with lettering on them.
If you want a special logo designed, you'll probably need to call
a machine shop, or something similar.

Just a couple of guesses.

Science Museum of MN. Let me know what you have to trade.
