Can't believe I forgot to post this 1985 Cent with a jack-o-lantern counterstamp for Halloween!

Nice one Spence. I believe that particular counter stamp originated on a card that was put out by Thomas SOS Enterprises.

Here is a birthday present counterstamp on a 1983 Cent. I got this back in 1985 on, as I recall, a birthday card. It has been lightly plated as well.

Nice one Spence. That one I believe was also put out by Thomas SOS Enterprises. I've only seen the business cards of them but that doesn't mean that they could have put out birthday cards with them on them.

@chafemaster, you really do have them all, eh? It is amazing how many of these things you have.

Can you give us a rough estimate of how many counter stamped coins are in your collection? Thx!

I tried to answer this recently. I copy and pasted here so I don't have to think so hard.

I haven't counted in a long long time. Think I have 7 Whitman albums (just ordered number 8) 7 pages deep (so that's 36 per page) gives 1750. But mind you that one whole album is different Masonic counter stamps. And there are plenty of duplicates. I'd guess if I cut that number in thirds it'd be roughly 600. Plus the stuff that doesn't fit in an album about 75-100 gives a total of about 700. That sounds fair I think. Maybe I should sit down and actually count them whenever some free time happens to surprise me.

Yikes that is a stunning collection @chafe. When I have a minute to photograph it, I was going to post a cent with an Iowa state c/s. That makes we wonder, do you have a complete (or nearly complete) collection of state counterstamps? I myself only have two or three states.

If it hasn't been done already, that might be a fun future thread topic.

Thank you for the kind words. I happen to have 3 complete sets of the states. One of them came framed. Then I've got about 35 or 40 random lonely states.




What states do you have?

You are the @justcarl of counterstamped cents!

Looks like I have two: the NY state posted a few pages upthread and then this one from Iowa. It has been quite some time since I was doing CRHing for wheat cents, and these were the two that I just happened to find and save. As you likely know, my currently collecting interests lie elsewhere, but I've been slowly photographing and posting parts of my US coin collection.
