Yeah I do CelticKnot. You can see the displaced metal that a drill bit leaves behind sometimes.

Right there with you on this! Torn between the initial "Wow, that's neat!", and then, "But it's a Flying Eagle!". Similar feeling as when I see the sometimes beautifully-done "love tokens" using 19th century gold coins...

Found a large lot of counter stamped LMCs on Ebay. Unfortunately they were all duplicates of counter stamps I already had. Bummer. Had hopes of at least a couple of new ones. Oh well... Is what it is.
