The only one I have at this time
Liberty Bell and USA Map on 1975 D LMC
Bicentennial theme similar to this one posted here in the thread. Just a tad different punch or punches used I think?

@TNG
I agree a slightly different stamp set. (I've often thought it was just one stamp with two images on it. I've seen some coins where they are both slightly askew yet still in line with each other.)These were also put out on a couple of different Bicentennial History Cards. Here's an example I could find the picture of. Sorry it's not oriented properly. The picture was taken early in my CCF days.

On a side note cdn44fan and TNG; That counterstamp was the first one I ever got at age 7. The real estate lady who sold us our house gave me one plated much like yours cdn. It was in a small jewelry box. Who'd have thought that that small kind gesture would have been the spark that put in motion the collection I have amassed to date.

An interesting find. This is not counterstamped but carved into the surface. Someone took the time and had the patience to cut these images with an Exacto blade or something similar.

I also found it interesting that the obverse has Lincoln smoking a pipe and the reverse has the Masonic square and compass. Strange combination.
