    Hi my friends at CT, thank everyone who gave me great birthday greetings. It was a beautiful day. I want to ask your opinions on a coin. Is it possible to stretch a penny to the size of a quarter and not distort the penny in any way? Thank you all

    I have seen pennies expanded in size before, my friend found a nickel-sized one a week ago.

    I have no idea how it is done but I know it is possible. Maybe someone else can chime in.

    Its possible,can be done I've found cents the size of quarters in rolls CRH might still have one.

    Why do you ask? You’re not thinking of replacing them in quarter rolls are you? :hilarious:

    Here ya go. "Size of a quarter" might not be practical, but "size of a nickel" is apparently easy. Of course, it gets thinner, too.

    Not at all my friend. One of my friends showed me a 45 what penny that is the size of a quarter. I looked at it very close and cannot see any place on it that shows where the metal gave in to stretching. The wheat is all in 100% perfect place. I'm going to see if he'll let me post y'all some pics. Thanks for your input on this.
