STATUE OF LIBERTY
The next one is a souvenir from the Empire State Building. It has an image of the skyscraper and it is marked:
THE EMPIRE STATE
Next there are two from the former Twin Towers of The World Trade Center that was in New York. One has just the twin towers and the other has the buildings with the New York City skyline. They each read:

Next there is one from Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom. It has an image of a pirate skeleton at a ship's helm from the Pirates of the Caribbean. This one was from either Disneyland in California, or Disney World in Florida. It is marked:
The last three of the elongated cents in this lot are religious ones. There are two from different dies that have The Ten Commandments, and one that has the Lord's Prayer. The one with the Lord's Prayer has a hole to hang it as a charm or pendant.
These each measure around 1-1/2'' long. They are in excellent to mint condition as pictured.
