        Yeah, that's what I used to do- but what about those coin shrinking machines- that's pretty cool too.
        I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

          Yes indeedy! The capacitors are a bit pricey. I priced them a few years ago and the total cost looked to be about $600!

                Text? There are complete exploded view diagrams with the patents. You need a PDF reader.

                  There's coin operated machines at the Pikes Peak tram office (Manitou Springs, Colorado) that will roll a penny and imprint various pictures on it. The penny comes out in the shape of a football only flat.

                    I guess putting a coin through the wringer is illegal. Is this law ever enforced?

                    And since it is illegal, how can you get a patent on a machine whose sole purpose is to commit the crime?

                      It's only illegal to deface coinage if the intent is to defraud.

                        Got it. I guess the intent is to stop anybody from lessening the amount of gold or silver in a coin. Not likely anybody would try to get some extra zinc by making dodgy pennies.

                          No harm, no foul

                          Feds say, as long as you are 'increasing' the value of the coin, no problemo. If destroying the value, look out.

                          'Artwork, ie fretting?? as done by the SF hippies of the 60's.

                            This machine might be a problem here in Canada. Apparently the Mint now uses plated steel for our pennies! Duffy
