Smashed Penny

Have you ever been on a trip and brought back an elongated coin? You know the go to the Statue of Liberty, or the Zoo..and you put 51 cents into the penny machine, turn the crank and out pops a smashed penny with a picture from the landmark you are have yourself a cheap souvenier! I collected them for a while, and actually used to have a book to hold them all in. It's a nice cheap reminder of your trip, and the kids like the fact that you can do it's almost like you made your souvenier! Sometimes they had 3 designs to choose from, and you got to pick the one you wanted to smash on your penny. I don't see those around much anymore. I wonder what happened to my collection?
