Some coins you get and/or collect are just novelties like the counter stamped one you have here. They are fun and may not be in the best condition but how you obtained it and the memory that goes with it is priceless.

I have a couple myself :)

I saw this at a show last month. I think the dealer was selling them for a dollar or something.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

They can't go for much because if they did some folks would just have a punch made up and start making their own to sell. It was a privately made item and anyone can make more of them. If you round up a group of them and examine the Kennedy punch you will find that they are from multiple punches already. What's one more?

I can't make out your date the one I'm referring to was 1967 and had every bit the patina from back then

I can remember those being advertised in the back of magazines. If I remember right, you could send a quarter or so and they would send you one. I can remember taping a quarter to a cereal box cutout and mailing it off for various items. A postage stamp was only a nickle back then.

A nickel? That's outrageous! You should be able to mail a letter for Three Cents! Next thing you know, they'll want fifty cents for a shave and a haircut!
I would also collect chocolate coins, except for that one problem.

I just cut my own hair and I shave once a week, whether I need to or not.
