    Description

    Counterstamped French 1897 10 Centime. Counterstamped with a British World War I dogtag. The counterstamp is for an F. Lopez C.E. 2851 9. R. Scots. This translates that he was a member of the Ninth (Highlanders) Battalion, The Royal Scots. This battalion took part in major fighting during the Battle of the Somme in 1916. This extremely interesting counterstamp would appeal to many collecting areas and should bring spirited bidding.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
