    Those are AMAZING.

    I have a few - my first was a 1901 Pan Pacific Exposition encased cent.

  • ashelandasheland Posts: 11,060 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @ThePennyLady Those are awesome! I was hoping you would post on this thread!

    @JBK Do you have a picture? I'd like to see that one! :)

  • JBKJBK Posts: 3,712 ✭✭✭✭✭

    If I can dig it out I would be happy to post a picture, but that might be easier said than done..... It is a horseshow shaped one in any case.

    I did find a vintage one (wheat cent) in the coin machine reject tray at the bank - that one I have handy. I will try to take pics.

    @Stork That's awesome! :)

  • ashelandasheland Posts: 11,060 ✭✭✭✭✭

    This is my favorite one and the one that got me started collecting these:

    Charmy, those penny exonumia items are awesome. I always enjoy it when you post some of the many examples you have accumulated. The teapots are amazing, and the complete tea service is specially nice. Thank you for posting them.

    Here are a bunch of really fun Lincoln cent exonumia from my collection:

    I was just looking up some information about a related matter and I stumbled across a vintage ad which shows who made the 1918-D Lincoln Cent push-out:

    Great thread.....@ThePennyLady...a truly amazing collection.... And if that Joe Louis cent ever goes up for sale, please let me know... Cheers, RickO

  • JBKJBK Posts: 3,712 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I think I have seen a Joe Louis one like that, but I did not realize it was a cap.

    I found this one in the reject tray of the coin counting machine at the credit union. Assuming it was made when dated, it is from 1927. I wonder what else might have been in the pile of coins that was NOT rejected...

    It is apparently a known issue by a San Francisco business.

  • JBKJBK Posts: 3,712 ✭✭✭✭✭

    There is one design that was made in the past few years that has been available on eBay, and it is a tribute to WWII veterans and contains cents from 1945. The text mentions that "there is no substitute for VETERINARY service". The issue was a good idea, but the issuer needed a dictionary.

    Penny exonumia is truly one of my biggest passions, and I'm very happy to share it with you folks.

    Ricko, I'm sure you know how hard it is to find a Joe Louis capped cent but I will keep you in mind if the time ever comes to part with any of my exonumia.

    Daniel, that ad is awesome - I've never seen it before. Thank you for posting it! I saved it in my penny exonumia folder. I really enjoy having any documentation that goes along with these pieces. Here are a few pieces of documentation I have gathered for some of my exonumia:

    I very much treasured being able to acquire these original cards and boxes for my penny teapot collection. And another collector gave me a copy of this really wonderful letter from a penitentiary warden.



    The collector who gave me this Rose sticker cent also gave me the original newspaper ad offering a discount on their auto parts with the sticker cent.


    These die cut cards that came with the capped cents are also very difficult to find

    As are the cards that came with these repousse/popout cents

    and the Victory pins

    @ThePennyLady

    Incredible stuff, especially the prison letters.

    Now here is a question for you: have you CREATED any penny-related exonumia yourself to advertise your business? Encased cent, elongated cent, counterstamped cent, sample slab, cent glued to a card, etc..... If not, then I hope you do. You would be making an important contribution to the world of cent-related exonumia.

    I had a coin card created a while back, but I'm not sure you would call it exonumia.

    That's a great one. I would definitely call it exonumia but I am not an expert...

    Do you still hand those out?

  • ashelandasheland Posts: 11,060 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @ThePennyLady that's a cool advertisement piece you had made! :)

    Some here may know Al Bobrofsky current VP of MSNS, and many other offices through the years. In the 1980's he had his own coin shop in Battle Creek, MI. Here is his encased cent.

    I collect encased coins, but I focus more on the nickels and silver coins, especially silver dollars.
    But here is one of the encased cents that I have - the only one I've ever seen of this unusual date and mint mark:

    I love these. My wife found a very nice key date wheat in good condition. I forget what it is now. The cent is in great shape. Someone got it and tucked it away. Now we've tucked it away and I've no idea where to even begin to start looking lol.
