Smashed Pennies

I ran across a site about 'Smashed Pennies'. In other words, pennies that are squeeze through a die producing a souvenir pattern.
He even had one that came from here in town at Garden of the Gods - and another from Pikes Peak.
I'll have to check if there are any other Patterns on Pikes Peak next time I'm up there.

I love these things and its a very well done site. I was very surprised though to see no mention of Disney's pressed pennies (and quarters) as they are very popular items to collect:
