A special elongated coin was created to commemorate the 43rd Hot Springs, Ark., Coin, Stamp & Sports Card Show.
The piece was designed by Gene Johnson, engraved by Jim Dundon and rolled by Vicky and Lee Bowser.
The show, presented by the Tri-Lakes Coin Club, took place Jan. 16-18.
The Bowsers were on hand with a cent smashing machine at the show to roll the elongated coins on site.
To order the commemorative elongated coin, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope and $1 for one coin or $2 for three coins to Tri-Lakes Coin Club, P.O. Box 2407, Hot Springs, AR 71901.
