these counter stamped coins are made out side of the mint to commemorate significant passages of time from less than honorable coin distributors not really adding value to the coin I personally have a 1960 1980 counter stamped Kennedy half
My dad was roll searching and had a whole roll full of these. He had them in a bag when I saw him today and he wanted to know what they were. I didn't know what to tell him. Now I know. Sort of.
