I agree @circus, I think that using plain copper cents for the host makes the final, elongated product look better.

When you use a modern cent in an elongated rolling machine, it exposes the zinc underneath the plating. Even a limited amount of handling with your fingers or exposure to the elements will then cause the elongated to corrode. To preserve your collection, try to always use pre-1982 cents when you make elongated coins.

A few more transportation ones:

Discovery Ship in Dundee, Scotland:

Norwegian Sun Cruise Ship:

Boat on Lake Windemere, England:

Double-deck streetcar in the National Tram Museum, Crich, England:


You can tell that the Norwegian Sun penny is a post-1982 zinc US cent, as the zinc is showing through. Unfortunately the pennies were pre-loaded in this machine so I couldn't choose a pre-1982 copper one to smash!
