The Sword in the Stone Pressed Penny Sets

The Sword in the Stone set of pressed penny images are on two sets of coins. The original set (DL0396-398) was first on-stage January 19, 2007 and off-stage not long after on February 7th, 2007. The penny press machine dies returned with updated backstamps on February 9, 2007 making a different set of coins (DL0402-404). Merlin the Magician coins, the DL0396 and DL0402, are the easiest backstamps of the set to identify. The original, DL0396 backstamp, reads "Merlyn" with an open second "R" of "RESORT". The updated, DL0402 backstamp, reads "Merlin" and has a filled-in or closed center in the second "R" of "RESORT".

The DL0396 backstamp change necessitated replacement of the DL0397 and DL0398 backstamps at the same time. However, the changes made to the other two backstamp images are much harder to spot. The easiest way for my old eyes to tell them apart is the small difference in the second "R" of RESORT. The early backstamps, DL0396, DL0397 and DL0398, have an open "R" compared to the filled-in or closed "R" seen in the updated backstamps, DL0402, DL0403 and DL0404.

We hope that the ParkPennies.com detail images of the DL0396 / DL0402, DL0397 / DL0403 and DL0398 / DL0404 will help you in identifying the coins you have or need.

You know, "Merlyn" cleared my spell check and I would have let it go. But, Disney is particular about such things. Pressed Penny Smiley
