Definitely not a Lincoln Cent but a cool counter stamp nonetheless. I'm not sure what the dates signify. Jbuck. . . any ideas?





Edit: Possibly the 40 year anniversary of the end of World War II?

I agree, 40th anniversary of WWII Victory.. The five stars should be obvious, but in case they are not, Ike was one of the five Five-Star generals.

Of note, there have been two Six-Star generals in the nation's history - Washington and Pershing.

But not while they were actively serving as no one has ever worn a six-star rank insignia.

They are referred to as six-star generals now to reflect their rank as General of the Armies (of the United States), whereas a five-star is General of the Army. Washington was actually given the rank posthumously, so Pershing was the only active General of the Armies. However, he wore four gold stars (instead of four silver). The six-star rank and insignia were proposed but never codified by Congress, so its application to them is only ceremonial and an indicator of their being a higher rank than the five-star generals.

Of interesting note, Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman, and Philip Sheridan all held the equivalent of the five-star rank without actually wearing a five-star insignia.

A really unique carved and/or engraved 1929 LWC. I`d guess it`s an advertisement for someone but there is no company name. Perhaps it was just a practice piece for someone. . .

Looks like a monogram pressed cent. MAC is what comes to mind but I suppose the letters could be arranged in any order.
