Elongated Cents of the NMUSAF

28 May 2018

The National Museum of the United States Air Force is a fascinating place. Several historic air and space vehicles are featured on elongated cents, which (as of spring 2018) can be created using the penny press machines in their gift shop. This collection is a sample of elongates created there.

Nice collection. Using a steel cent is a great idea, or an okd wheat to see if the date is still readable. Will need to put some steel wheats in the car for next machine.
