Penny Press #10 - Bass Pro Shop in Garland, TX


The holiday shopping season brought us to the Bass Pro Shop.  And like all places should, they had a Penny Pressing Machine.  Here are the options:

It lloks like they've got a wolf and a goat which definitely goes along with the outdoor theme.  Of course they have the logo but what really stands out is the Anteater.  I assume that's an anteater.  Despite the temptation, I went with the logo:

It has the town name too which will help when I procure more Bass Pro Shop pennies from different locations.

Penny Press #9 - Charlotte, NC

 Our recent trip to Charlotte, NC was yet another opportunity to smash a penny.  This smash happened at the Discovery Place kid's science museum.

The options included Einstein, some sharks (I think), the Charlotte skyline and a parrot:

Normally I'd go for something that specifically relates to the place where I smash but this time I went for the skyline.  I'm not sure if I'll see another penny smasher while I'm here so that should cover me for my whole Charlotte stay.
