It’s always fun to get the latest issue of the The Elongated Collectors (TEC) newsletter in the mail. I always enjoy reading all the informative articles and seeing what member-exclusive coins will be included.
About the July 2019 TEC issue
July’s newsletter was a good one with 19 pages of articles. Highlights from this issue are included below.
- There was an article about the Old Drum court case and commemorative coin in an interesting article by long-time TEC member Ray Dillard.
- There was an article by Uni Marbutt about the history of M&M’s candies as well as collecting M&M’s World pressed pennies.
- There was an article about collecting elongated coins along the Ohio Turnpike.
- There was an article about the history of the origin of the Ferris Wheel at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition – which incidentally was when the first elongated coin was ever rolled!
- and much more!
July 2019 TEC Member Coins
This issue’s coins did not disappoint. This month all TEC members received 2 coins commemorating the anniversary of the moon landing. The 2 coins were the winners of the 2019 TEC Design contest. The coins were rolled by TEC member Tyler Tyson.
The first pressed penny was designed by Paul Conner. His clever pressed penny features the TEC owl mascot as an astronaut and proclaims “The Owl Has Landed’.
The second pressed penny was designed by TEC junior member Hayley Russell. Her design features the TEC owl mascot on the moon with the American Flag. The text reads “One Giant Leap for Mankind”.
While you are here, be sure to check out the rest of the TEC elongated coins in the Pressed Penny Museum.
