Pressed Penny Wish List

We love collecting pressed pennies from places we have visited!  Sometimes though we don’t have any change at all (shame on us!) or not enough to get the entire set. Or the machine might be out of order.  Other times, we were unaware that a location was host to a penny machine until after we got back home.

Please see the bottom of the list for penny sets we currently have available for trade.

At any rate, we are looking to add the following smashed pennies to our collection…
