I agree Earle but I can't think of any other reason that someone would mount a smaller coin like that.

A 2021 LSC Kennedy facing Lincoln counter stamp. What a surprise when I saw this. Someone actually made a contemporary stamp for one of the most common classic counter stamps. I'd say that through the 60s, 70s and 80s there were at least a dozen different stamps that I picked up on.

I like this new version of the Lincoln Kennedy cent!

A very good theory.

Let me add that, from my experience with restoring old hand tools (sometimes embellishing them!), that the jeweling (swirling patterns) appears to be a home job from non-uniform spacing/placement vs. something professional.

I amy be wrong, but just offered what I thought of when I saw it first.

I think that is one of the best Mason stamps I have seen so far.

I need some help with this one. I've searched but I guess I'm not really sure what I'm looking at. Looks like a star flanked by a couple of things with a mask of some sort centered at the bottom. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.





Edit: I did find one symbol that mentioned something flanked by angels. They might be angel wings on either side of whatever is in the middle of this one.

I had posted this pressed LMC in the "Masonic tokens, coins and counter stamped pennies" thread looking for help as to what it was. Commems hit it out of the park with a great ID.

In my search for the previous post ID I discovered that DeMole is part of the Masonic organization.

Wow. . . This counter stamp I have seen many times but I guess I have never dug into finding a meaning of it. In my search I discovered that there are some people that consider the Masonic organization a secret satanic occult. This counter stamp is of a cane flanked by two balls. These people consider it a phallic symbol.

A more mainstream definition is this quote I copy and pasted:
TUBAL CAIN IN FREEMASONRY -. "Tubal Cain has been considered among Masons as a symbol of worldly possessions." - Albert Gallatin Mackey - A lexicon of freemasonry Masonic Historian, Albert Gallatin Mackey had said that Tubal Cain is the Vulcan of the Pagans, and is thought to have been closely connected with ancient Freemasonry.
