    Over in the O-Review database they list a TiO2/Emerald Iridium Penny (SKU 04-133)...but I've never seen a Penny with a TiO2 finish or know of anyone who's owned one. Do any of you fellow metal-heads out there have one?

    I saw photos of a nice facsimile done by the X-Man in his customs thread, but I was just curious if anyone owned an original OEM version. They say the X-Metal/Ruby Pennys are the rare ones, but I've seen plenty of those in my travels. No TiO2s yet, though.

    Was never produced, but the sku was released. All out there are reassembled from 2 frames or blasted/painted like Xmans.

    For all intents and purposes, xmetal pennys are the rare ones. Second runner up is titanium vr28 black... Titanium ice and polished black tie for most common

    Funny, I would've thought Copper would be the second runner up...seeing as how they are fetching prices almost as high as the X-Metal ones these days.

    Thanks for answering my question, BTW.

    ah crap, forgive me its late. yes, there was 2-3 polished carbon ones made, but there has since been some aftermarket ones in the market too. thats top dog if you include unreleased pairs. copper actually places rarer than xmetal. it totally slipped my mind- stupid, since im looking for one. but out of all the regular releases, xm penny is still the most sought simply due to the number of different markets after it (movie buffs, cosplay community etc)

    Its been done for sure. Just slap a titanium and an xmetal penny together.. Or i guess the cheaper method would be to blast finish a titanium penny. Definitely looks cool, but i'm pretty focused on th copper hunt
