More Very Cool PENNY EXONUMIA!!!

7 posts in this topic

Just got these fantastic photos back from Todd of more of my penny exonumia. As I mentioned before, I'm writing an article (and possibly putting together an exhibit for the Summer ANA) on "Penny Exonumia" so I was very excited to add these little guys to my collection.



I bought this rare Wonder Bread "Sticker Penny" from John Kraljevich. Even though it is a simplistic advertising medium, it seems that not many of these sticker pennies survived.




I also bought this interesting Hobo Penny from John - it's a little crude, but it was the first Hobo Penny I'd seen!




This hard to find piece is a "Pop Out" or "Push Out" penny made from a 1904 Indian cent from Teddy Roosevelt's 1904 Presidential Campaign




This is just a pretty toned penny with "The Lord's Prayer" carved or stamped on the reverse



These next few are sometimes referred to as "Pie Cutters/Crimpers" but since they don't have holes punched in the middle, they were perhaps used as clock gears; or they could have simply been carved to be used as jewelry

Your personal collection is phenomenal and I would love to see it on exhibit. I can never get enough of the pictures you post, how much of your collection is photographed?
