Deface some coins...
Those are pennies being used as seatstay caps on a cool Sycip.
Here goes a web site about smashing pennies. Oh, wait, this site is better.
I have two smashed pennies and a smashed 2 cent Euro coin in my collection.
The top one is the Lord's Prayer which I got by accident. I think I'll give it to my Mom for her 79th birthday. She's kind of a holy roller.
The bottom one is the one I really wanted, Natural Bridge, VA. You'd think Natural Bridge, VA would be like a national park or even a state park, but no. It is more like a tourist trap, but they did have a penny smashing machine.
I got the coin in the middle in Germany, at a castle along the Rhine River, near St. Goar. It is a smashed, errr, elongated 2 cent Euro coin. It cost 50 cents Euro to make it, a bargain.
Interestingly, the company that makes the machines is called Eurolink Design. Coincidence? Spooky!
