Business Wire Smash!

– by Phil Dennison, Senior Marketing Specialist

The Incredible Hulk’s famous battle cry came to mind today as I arrived at the Qwest Center in Omaha to find our newly-assembled Penny Press machine, which will be used by attendees of the 2010 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Meeting to create their souvenir pennies for charity.  Mike Compton and his team from Renze Display did a terrific job putting together the penny smasher as well as the rest of our booth.

The best thing is that I got to be the first person to run a penny through it!  Several of them, in fact — one for each of the four designs we’re making available. With a bunch of shiny, newly-minted pennies in hand, I turned the crank for each design and was rewarded with four fun new souvenir collectibles. Even better, we’re providing a nice little keepsake card for your pennies.  And just one penny will look lonely, so of course you’re going to want to get all four, right?
