Came across a pressed penny machine at Eureka Skydeck 88 where blank copper coins are pressed between rollers to produce 4 different imprints.

I was surprised to learn that people have been pressing pennies for over 100 years as well as collecting and trading them.

The kids seem to be enjoying exchanging their gold coins for flattened copper. Perhaps your Eureka Skydeck 88 pressed pennies may be worth more than the copper they are imprinted on.
