Just got an email back, no luck. Maybe this summer?

Dear RJ,

Thank you for signing up for our free coin offer. Due to the response and to unforeseen events we are unable to send out any free coins until June 1st. If this is a problem for you, please let us know and we will refund your money.



Thank You



Katrina Gowen

There is a local company that makes penny press machines...

http://www.rockyrockholt.com/products.htm

Scroll down for the portable version.

They are pretty expensive, though...

Code:
Good morning Rick,

Thanks for your interest in my penny press machines.  I have placed the
information below that you requested.  Please look it over and then let me
know how we can work together.

Rocky Rockholt

MACHINE ON A POST

This sturdy machine sells for $1,995.00 plus a $35.00 packing charge and
shipping charges. The price includes one custom die of your choice and an
instruction videocassette showing how to assemble the machine to the stand,
plus any additional adjustments that you may need to make over a period of
time.

It has been designed for use at fairs, flea markets, fund raising or similar
events and does require an attendant/operator.

The Machine On A Post comes in three boxes: the stand base, the stand and
the elongating machine itself.  The die ring (this is the part where the
designs are engraved) will hold up to four different designs, and they can
be added when the machine is purchased or at anytime in the future.  Each
additional die design will cost $150.00 including the artwork, engraving and
return shipping to you.

This is a tough, durable machine and stand manufactured of aluminum to make
it easily portable.  The stand has big 6" wheels so that you can tilt the
machine back and roll it to any location very easily.  The gears, shafts,
crank handle and die ring are all tough hardened steel for long-term
durability.  Total weight of this unit is approximately 75 pounds.

I will complete the final artwork that is required for the die designs in
order for my engraver to complete the engraving.  I will need from you the
text and a copy of the line drawing, if you are using building, bridges,
monuments etc., to successfully complete the artwork for you.  Once I
complete the artwork, it is faxed to you for your final approval before
being submitted to my engraver.  A $500.00 deposit is required when I begin
the artwork, and the balance of $1,495.00 plus packing and shipping charges
is due before shipment is made to you.

We are working with a bank specializes in lease purchase financing that will
finance 100% of the purchase price of one or more of our machines.  You can
even initiate the plan, if yours is a seasonal business, so that you make
your payments during your busy time of year rather than in your off season.


Please let me know if you want more details and I will be happy to fax you
one of their applications.  If you have a good credit rating this is the way
you should go!  The conditions of using the lease/purchase plan require that
the machines will be placed in the United States of America and you must
have a good credit history.

Lease purchase, in this case means, that you are making a purchase under a
lease/purchase plan that allows you to make regular payments until you have
paid in full for the machine and take advantage of  the tax advantages at
the same time.

How can I help you with the purchase of this fine machine?

You can either pay a buck or send them a SASE with 3 stamps on it, which I was going to do as soon as I had a second. But I got the email back saying don't bother before I sent it out. So nothing lost, nothing gained.
