I recently obtained some Pressley Guitar gaffed coins in an old collection I bought. There is even a Pressley Guitar flyer describing his coin gaffs he sold. There is a Copper/Silver/Brass set and a Chinatown Half set. Does anyone know how to date Pressley Guitar coins? The half dollars are dated 1967 and 1968 but I assume that doesn't mean he made the gaffs those years. When was Pressley Guitar manufacturing coins? All I know is that it was sometime in the 1970's. Any other info about him would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Pressley is still around. He was at a convention a few years ago selling some things he had from when he was still manufacturing.

He might be.
You might find using private messages to ask some folks from that area a quicker path for help making contact.

That is really surprising news that he is back making products. He told me 20 or so years ago, he gave it up. I contacted him maybe 10 years ago and he would not make me a coin gaff. Good to hear he is back at it.

I think he gave it up back then because Johnson Products "borrowed" all his items and manufactured them. Anyway, that is the story I heard. I was told by other sources the Silver, Copper, Brass and Cig-thru-quarter was his designs. He was hard to find back then. You might look up his add in the old Linking Ring Magazines and check the address is still good.

Did you read the entire message? It clearly says he was "... selling some thing from when he was still manufacturing."

Says nothing about him currently making products.
