These are the perfect earrings for the serious pressed penny collector! The pressed pennies are from Disney World's Downtown Disney in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. They feature Jasmine and say World of Disney underneath her. They were attached to pure copper earwires by pure copper jump rings. They are approximately 2 inches long. I only use pennies minted before 1982, which are 95% copper. Pennies minted since 1982 are 99% zinc and are only copper plated. Therefore, when they are squished, you can see the zinc throughout the design. Zinc doesn't polish very well either and tarnishes to a dark gray, which is quite visually unappealing. The last photo shows the difference between the 2 types of pennies. I also have the matching necklace for sale.
Looking for a different design? Just let me know! I have been collecting elongated coins for more than 20 years and am lucky enough to have access to hundreds of machines within easy driving distance. You can see some of the available designs here:
