ANA - Today's modern elongated cents (also known as pressed pennies, squashed cents, rolled cents, and many other names), can trace their history to innovation at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition held in Chicago. The first recorded documentation of coins (both U.S. and World) being "rolled" with a press with a design on the roller to produce a new type of souvenir, was done at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Over two dozen elongated design types are known to have been "rolled" at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition.

A whole new numismatic collecting field was created and is growing even today. You can find elongated rolling machines at most tourist attractions (museums, zoos, theme parks, etc.) not only in the U.S. but in other countries around the world.

The presentation will show the growth and development of elongate collecting from 1893 to today, and provide collecting information. Instructor: Richard Jozefiak
