HENRY FORD MUSEUM

Dearborn, Michigan

 

Rosa Parks bus set pressed on circulated British 6-pence coins.  The 6p coin is thinner than a penny, so all coins roll short.  Designs: Rosa Parks bus; JFK limo; Allegheny locomotive; Lincoln’s chair from Ford’s Theatre.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wienermobile set pressed on circulated 1943 steel U.S. cents.  Due to the strength of steel, these roll a bit short as the machine is calibrated for softer copper and zinc coins.  These coins show signs of wear.  The date is generally shown on the reverse.  These coins have a clear paint coating to prevent rust. We recommend you place them in Mylar 2x2 holders to help prevent any future deterioration. Do not allow these to get wet! Designs: Wienermobile; Ford Mustang; Tucker; Ford GT.

 

Remember, photos show representative sets - your set will differ slightly but be of similar quality.

 

For the regular collection of pennies from the museum pressed on copper cents, see the Michigan page
