I'm looking for a penny (American not English) expanded s***l? Do any of the main stream companies make it? I'm aware that I could get Jaime or Todd to make one for me but I'd rather have something that I'm not going to worry about so much I realized and so I'm looking to know if any people like Johnson or Sasco or any company makes them. Drop me a line to let me know. Unless Jaime or Todd are super cheap I wouldn't be able to do it.

Amazing...I guess it's a lot harder than I thought to find one of these.

Penny to Dime will do it for you. On top of that, the penny will be reactive to a magnet. It's about $10

I was also going to suggest a Penny to Dime set, but I think Aubrey is looking for an expanded ] that works with another penny, not a slightly smaller coin.

Aubrey, is this correct? SETH

Could you hand-expand a penny shell by rubbing it with the end of a spoon or something? I don't have any here to try with, but since the difference is so little, maybe it will work. Maybe?

That is correct Seth an expanded penny ] is what I'm looking for. Think about a small kid like 6 or 7 working with coins and wanting to get started with doing ] work with normal (read everyday) currency.

Aaron could you expound on hand expanding the ] from a penny dime set?

I was just thinking of how Steve Dusheck said he made his Copper/Silver transposition gaff: by pushing a coin into it until the sides gave enough to work. I was thinking that with the small end of a spoon, or maybe a chopstick, you could put some pressure from the inside of the shell to bend the sides out ever so much. Not really sure if it would work, and I don't have any supplies here to try it with. Mr. Dusheck is the king of home-gaffed coins, though. If you could PM him, maybe he could offer some advice.

Get him started with Quarters. Starting with Pennies isn't going to help him in the long run, since his hands are going to grow a lot.
Yes, that is my real name. Yes, I am a real person. No, you probably won't agree with me.
