Default Anyone live near Dauphin, AL

Hey there,

We recently visited Dauphin Island and spend a wonderful afternoon at the Estuarium Sea Lab there. My DD got an elongated penny out of one of those crank machines with a seahorse on it. Unfortunately she has since lost it, it fell between some rocks she was climbing on never to be seen again! This has resulted in many tears since then. I'm wondering if any MBB's live in that area and would be able to replace it for me. I would be more than happy to pay for it. Thanks for any help you can offer.

I don't live near there but I'm pretty sure there are other penny stretching places. Had to be one in San Francisco if I recall. Some big city with another museum type place...

Think Monterey (CA) Aquarium had one too.
i was googling and found this:

http://www.pressedpenny.com/

not sure what it says yet!

oh cute! a pepper lighthouse...$1.50

I Love Lighthouses Single
This is a single COPPER Pressed Penny. The design is a beautiful lighthouse with the inscription "I Love Lighthouses" around the top and "Collector" around the bottom. It is a vertical elongated coin and has a dashed rope border. It is pressed on a solid copper penny. Item #C936.

I don't know if this helps, but this company has a toll-free phone #1-866-766-7166.

My DH works some for their parent company, and he did have a few of their machines
in some other museums, but not at an Aquarium.

There's a logo for the Association of Zoos & Aquariums at the bottom of their page,
so I think this is the company that provides those presses.
