I wish we could know the story behind why people chose the designs they did on those that are not so obvious. The dragon has a "cool" factor, but a flipping fish? Maybe it was a fisherman's club that made and gave them away, maybe a sale promo for seafood, maybe an aquarium had them made for souvenirs?

Actually this specific counter stamp was made to be sold as a novelty. It was glued onto a business card that was part of a maybe 20 card set. (I'm not sure if I have all of them.) The one I just posted was one that I happened to run across without the card.

I've posted this counter stamp before but had labeled it as "Star of David".
I just learned that there is more to it than that.

It is called the Heart Chakra Anahata. Incorporating the Star of David.

Another two Kennedy counter stamped novelty cards. Here are also the other similar cards I have found over the years...

These two are new...



These are ones I've shared in the past...

Another of the uncommon pressed cents. This one from Cecil County, Maryland. I wonder if these were the precursor to the modern day oval smashed pennies that the tourist machines produce? The kiosk machines that you insert 50 cents to a dollar plus a penny and crank it to smash a keepsake souvenir. Does anyone ever recall seeing machines for the purpose of selling souvenirs that could produce a pressed cent like this?
