    Description

    Countermarks and Counterstamps 66 Samples, Validations, revaluations, relocations, cancellations, modifications, guarantees, pledges, promises, promotions and publicity were among the likely reasons this group now exists. Even on famed Route 66 is it unlikely that 5.5 dozen such dissimilar items could all be used for so many diverse transactions and exchanges. Whether produced by national authority, that of local states or municipalities, haciendas or even local merchants, these items employed worn coins or tokens or even blank flans as their host. The great majority are made of copper, many sized 25 to 30 mm, and likely nearly all from the 19th century. Not atypical are two over well worn USA large cents while three are on silver coin hosts, including a cob, a Spanish pistareen and a Carlos III bust 2R. No precise duplication was noted by us, the attributions must be considered tentative and thus are not guaranteed, and the quality is likely typical for such pieces with many heavily worn and abused. Most were obtained during the 1960s and 1970s, nearly half a century ago when such material was quite inexpensive and not well documented. Sold as is, NO Return.
