Son graduated from high school and has been feverishly working on his Eagle Project for Boy Scouts before he turns 18.

Congratulations to him and hope he makes the goal.

Cool coping saw!

I wonder if there is a rule, similar to that infamous internet rule (which I will only paraphrase)... If it exists, there is a counterstamp for it.

Seller called it a "geometric Virgo counter stamp". Whatever that means.




An older version of a Virgo counter stamp I found years ago...

The recent examples posted are mainly 6mm metal stamps, some made by impressart and then hammered into the coin by hand. You could also custom make metal stamps if you were creative and the profit was worthwhile from sales over the cost. The better ones of course are counterstamps when they have documentation or from an event - created as special souvenirs or marketing items in the past using a machine, rather than someone just metal stamping a countermark or design onto a coin by hand to make some potential money as most often is the case on the modern examples as mentioned. The benefit of the newer countermarked ones is variety that you now have a ton of new countermarked coins hand stamped which can certainly go in the direction Jbuck mentioned and why this thread is huge and interesting rather than short.

I assume these two counter stamps were meant as a pair...






Now we just need a "LIL" stamp.
