I am sure this has been done many times before...but I wanted to share this rendition to add to the collective (un) consciousness.

I have a delightful man-friend....I'm too old for a "boy"-friend... and we have been collecting smashed pennies on our travels this past year. Kinda my prince-charm(ing)-bracelet.

One day I will grow-up.

United States Code
331. Mutilation, diminution, and falsification of coins


?Whoever fraudulently alters, defaces, mutilates, impairs, diminishes,
falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins coined at the mints of
the United States, or any foreign coins which are by law made current
or are in actual use or circulation as money within the United States;
or whoever fraudulently possesses, passes, utters, publishes, or
sells, or attempts to pass, utter, publish, or sell, or brings into
the United States, any such coin, knowing the same to be altered,
defaced, mutilated, impaired, diminished, falsified, scaled, or
lightened? Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than
five years, or both.?

But I'm sure you already knew that Wink
I bet it would look really cool if it were made of nothing but pennie made pre-1941! Only because of the Copper content.

Oh Lisa....never grow up Smiley

I have some of those smashed pennies and hope to get around to making something out of them and don't worry about going to prison. The posted info missed a few things. 

In the United States, U.S. Code Title 18, Chapter 17, Section 331 prohibits "the mutilation, diminution and falsification of United States coinage." The foregoing statute, however, does not prohibit the mutilation of coins, if the mutilated coins are not used fraudulently, i.e., with the intention of creating counterfeit coinage or profiting from the base metal (the pre-1982 copper U.S. cent which, as of 2010, is worth more than one cent in the United States). Because elongated coins are made mainly as souvenirs, mutilation for this purpose is legal.
