TOLEDO ZOO

 

10 new machines were installed in mid-2019. 

 

COMPLETE SETS: complete sets of 40 coins are not available due to continuous problems with machines.  At this stage I am able to offer 10 machines – 39 coins (instead of 40).  The parakeets coin from the Aviary has been out of service for several months.  I will try again in late October, and the coin will be offered individually (and added to sets) if it becomes available at a later date.

 

I had planned to offer sets with penny books, but the books are out of stock at the zoo.

OHIO TURNPIKE – Mahoning Valley service plaza

Westbound mile marker 237

 

Complete set of 4 pressed on new zinc pennies dispensed by the machine.  These roll off-centered - I have not found any of the turnpike machines rolling with well-centered designs.  They have a high price point at the machine, the machines are slow as all get-out (as my mom would say), and they are only available on zinc, so I have no current plans to stock other locations along the turnpike.
