George Meyer Retirement elongated coin 


Comparison of DS0011 DS0011a and
DS0012 George Meyer Elongated Coins

We hope the detail comparison of the George Meyer die variations above and the guide sections below will help you attribute these very collectable George Meyer elongated coins. Although we believe the native coin is a nickel, denominational variations of cent (pressed penny), quarter and token were reported to have also been presented to George as retirement keepsakes. What cool retirement gifts!

From top to bottom:
The DS0011 with low height, etched grip, blank back.
The DS0011a with higher, smooth machine engraved grip, blank back.
The DS0012 has a short, smooth machine engraved grip, features a greater distance between "George Meyer" and the grip compared to the DS0011/a and also is the only George Meyer coin to feature a backstamp. The DS0012 backstamp is horizontal and reads "DISNEYLAND ® RESORT".

We've also added some ParkPennies.com DS Arcade Shop Issues Guide sections below that we hope will help collectors identify / differentiate these very collectable George Meyer Retirement elongated coins.
Happy collecting!

A specially marqueed single die nickel press machine held this coin die at the retirement party on January 31st, 2007. The machine was available to guests who wished to press elongated nickel souvenir mementos of the day. Two attendees estimated that about 120 coins were pressed by party guests before an unsuccessful attempt to clear a jammed coin damaged the die.
