I'm new here and just learned a little about this coin I found in my grandpas collection. I wasn't aware that counterstamps were a thing and found this thread so I wanted to post it here and see if anyone could add any info or opinions

Yes. There is definitely a complete set of 50 states. They usually sell for <$20 on eBay. Here is one listed for considerably more.

to the CCF, KimberWynn

The counterstamps on your Spanish coin are commonly referred to as chopmarks. These 1800's era punch marks, basically personal ID's, were applied by Chinese merchants as the silver coins passed through their hands. They wanted to assure that the coins weren't plated, so they pierced the surface with the punch. Thus, each chopmark was a stamp of approval. To my experience, these coins generally sell in the $50-$75 range.

The state counterstamps, typically seen on Lincoln cents, are modern novelty items that might retail for a quarter, apiece.

I'll be more careful in the future to look for counterstamps. Interesting topic. For now I'll add two that I've had some time. I considered collecting these, but they seem to be hit and miss. I don't find them as valuable as some sellers. So I only have two.
