U.S. Coin Mutilation Laws
The E-Sylum: Volume 9, Number 36, September 3, 2006, Article 25

Coin Mutilation?   Who, me?
 
   Regarding the question on U.S. coin mutilation laws, Katie Jaeger writes: I researched the topic recently − and came up with the following quotation from Title 18 at the website www.straightdope.com...Click to read this article: Title 18, Section 331 states, “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, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.” This law enacted in 1909 was strictly enforced at first, bringing an abrupt end to countermarking, elongating, carving, cutting away blank fields, and pushing out reliefs on coins.
   The Treasury Department, however, has come to view the decree as hinging on its second word: fraudulently. Examples of fraudulent tampering are the ancient practice of shaving metal off the edges of solid gold coins, or the 1883 practice of making “racketeer nickels.” (When the Mint issued a nickel design which did not bear the words FIVE CENTS on the reverse, but instead employed a Roman numeral V just like the one on the $5 gold piece, some miscreants plated gold on their nickels and passed them as $5 pieces.)
   Section 331 takes aim at these types of deceptions, but not at the creation of coin novelties. The law was probably responsible for the practice of stickering and capping coins, which enabled advertising on coins without altering them. Elongated roller machines did disappear for a while, but the law never stopped kids from putting pennies on the railroad tracks!
   John and Nancy Wilson write: Here is information from the Wikipedia on the legality of making elongated coins in the U.S. and Great Britain: “The process of creating elongated coins is legal in the United States, Japan, South Africa and parts of Europe. 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. Because elongated coins are made mainly as souvenirs, mutilation for this purpose is legal.”
   It is no longer illegal in Great Britain to mutilate the image of the Queen, It is still illegal in Canada and blank planchets, slugs or U.S. pennies are occasionally used, though this law is often ignored both by the users of the machine and law enforcement. Full Story...Click to read this article
   Kerry Rodgers writes: I have an article on elongated coins in the September issue of Coin News. (That's the UK fella.) I have specific quotes from the Royal Mint and UK Treasury folk as to its legality. These quotes came from bureaucrats and lawyers − need I say more? They neatly avoid saying making stretchies is illegal − in so many words − but make it clear they don't approve. They have never prosecuted for it and thereby tested the law as they understand it.
   In the EU it is a whole different ball game and even though stretched EU cents are offered on eBay and elsewhere, it is a no-no. As the UK is part of the EU it could be illegal to squish EU cents in the UK, where they have no currency, whereas doing it to UK money itself may not be illegal if you have a smart lawyer. What was that about the law being an ass?
   The elongation issue in the US has been discussed at length in several places and I defer to my North American colleagues. It is not illegal from what I can gather. Nor is it in New Zealand since a change in the law sometime back overlooked deforming coins although it has some harsh things to say about melting them. A similar situation exists in Australia.

Barry Hands & Marcus Hunt
     For several years my friend, stock maker David Trevallion, formerly of James Purdey & Sons, had encouraged me to get together with some of his colleagues in the fine firearms business in London, England. Although I truly yearned to visit the England where rose and scroll engraving, the Purdey underbolt mechanism and the Anson and Deeley boxlock had been developed in the 19th century, earning my livelihood as a full-time firearms engraver left little leisure for travel − but when somewhat unexpectedly the opportunity of a combined business and pleasure trip to Africa and Italy presented itself in 2004 I immediately arranged my international flights to return to my Montana home state with a seven day layover in London.

Classic Carving from Dave Wilson's Estate Surfaces on eBay
Click to view an enlargement of this photograph.
Click to view an enlargement of this photograph.
     This extremely rare two-sided Classic carved nickel just sold on eBay for the exceptionally low price of $38.52. We know that this piece came from the estate of the late Dave “Willy” Wilson because the new owner saw it in the Wilson collection prior to Dave's passing. When it was last publicly offered for sale at OHNS's 2001 FUN Convention Auction #9 in Orlando, Florida as Lot #6... it was attributed to George Washington “Bo” Hughes and brought a nominal $132. ~ Art DelFavero, RM552

J.Press & J.Allen Photos Acquired for Archives!
Alpert's Early Modern Artist
 
  Alpert's Early Modern Artist
 John F. Press 9/20/46-3/10/83
John F. Press began making hobo nickels circa 1980, and died 1983. He taught J.Allen (see below) how to make hobo nickels, and their works are very similar in style. He signed his hobo nickels “J.PRESS” using a metal die, counterstamped on the buffalo. Hobo nickels signed by J.Press are much scarcer than those of J.Allen.
Alpert's Early Modern Artist
 
 
Alpert's Early Modern Artist
 J. Allen 8/1/47-
J. Allen, of Rochester, N. Y., is the only known female Early Modern hobo nickel artist. She began creating hobo nickels in 1982 and is still active. She learned the craft from her friend John Press (see above), and their workmanship is very similar. J.Allen uses hand-held gravers, and punches (arcs, circles, stars, dashes, etc.), to create her hobo nickels. She makes many designs, which include clowns, bikers, firemen, pirates, RR engineers, Santas, Uncle Sam, Einstein, etc. It takes her about one hour to make each hobo nickel. She signs her works “J. ALLEN” which is counterstamped on the buffalo; others are signed “JA”, and some were not signed. Some unsigned pieces have a rough field behind the head.

MIA ~ “Better Luck Next Time”
     I was hoping you could help me put the word out about a couple of my carved coins that have gone “MIA.” They were recently burgled from my brother's home in Lancaster, PA. Neither is particularly fantastic, or valuable for that matter, but they were carved out of love and I thought I should at least put
Click to view an enlargement of this photograph.
Example of original quarter
( NOT the missing carving )
it out there that these were taken.
     The first is on a 1936 nickel, and portrays the Indian wearing a “hoodie” style hooded sweatshirt, very basic, actually one of my first dozen or so carvings ever I think. It is signed LEECH and numbered, although I have lost record of what number it was exactly.
     The next is a 1976 Bicentennial Quarter that I carved into a portrait of my brother, Ben. The “BER” in “Liberty” was altered to read “BEN,” and the 1776 removed from the date to only read 1976, the year he was born. It features a man with a reversed baseball cap and glasses smoking a tobacco pipe. I somehow managed to not photograph it, or record the serial number, but it is signed LEECH so I doubt there are too many out there like it.

Replacement carving
     While I am at it, I have one more coin that's gone “MIA.” I had sent it to my dad in New Mexico, but he said the envelope arrived slit open, with the contents removed. It is titled “Better Luck Next Time” and portrays a crude skeleton in a lifeboat waving to a drowning man, and was based off a painting my dad did for a series of “Day of the Dead” inspired artworks when I was a kid. I have since carved a replacement, but wonder where the original is going to end up, or if whoever stole the first one recognized the irony of their theft... oh well, better luck next time!
     Thank you kindly,   Adam Leech
