You Poor, Poor Thing



1970 and Before Winner

Who knows what happened to this. Obverse is destroyed, lots of dents and a hole, hardly any detail left.

ikaros' Columbus Zoo elongated cent


When I moved last summer, I dropped a handful of pennies including some elongated cents on the windowsill in my bedroom. Condensation and direct sun turned an otherwise lovely embossed line art of a lion into this corroded disaster.

Don't remember seeing that elongated cent in the previous rounds! Gotta vote for that over something that has survived 450 years in decent shape!

The elongated cent was the only entry in its category; I think I showed it in the first week and noted it was a bye through to the quarterfinals. That's how my other cent got through, too; the farthing had to earn its spot. :)

I'm still not sure if congratulations or condolences are more appropriate. :D
