In the past ten years I have traveled with the PNNA’s penny press to club shows up and down the I-5 corridor. Not once in all that time has the penny press made it over the Cascades – until now. Thanks to the efforts of Alan Franke, the press and I were invited to the Coeur d’Alene Coin Club show, May 14-15, 2022. Alan also arranged to have a die picturing the club logo made and available when I got there. The show was a big success and was well attended. I cranked out around 250 elongated cents during the two-day show.
I’d like to thank Alan for his efforts as well as Coeur d’Alene Coin Club president Steve Harvie and other CDACC members in attendance for the very warm welcome they gave me and the press throughout the weekend. I look forward to coming back to future shows. – Rick Schulz.
