    'Houck's Panacea' Counterstamped 1829 Bust Half, HT-141

    (1836) Counterstamped 1829 Bust Half Dollar, Uncertified XF45. "Houck's Panacea Baltimore, Md" Counterstamped, listed as HT-141. Dr. Jacob Houck was born in Frederick, Maryland, and moved to Baltimore in 1828. In 1834 he began selling Houck's Panacea; it is believed that the counterstamp emanated from the 1836-1837 Hard Times period. He was a prolific counterstamper, using whatever coin was available to promote his product. A similar piece in VF20 brought over $1,000 in our September 2006 sale (lot number 6631).
