Some of these really take me by surprise as to what people have put on pennies. As I see all of these my mind starts to wander off in a weird direction.

What I mean is hard to explain. My lack of knowledge before this thread would never have had me believing there were 500 different Lincoln cent counterpunched designs known.

Just how many people do we as individuals personally know who have taken the time to come up with a design, pay to have a hardened punch made...realizing a lot of these were probably made before the internet and so it would be a big deal to track someone down with punch-making skills... and then stamped that design into a group of coins?

To the left of this page we see there are over 102 thousand active users on this site. So far none of them I am aware of have posted anything about them personally making a counterpunched coin design and going through with it (we do have one person who had some CCF coins minted).

And yet 500 different human minds, at some time, came up with the idea of designing a counterpunch for pennies and actually acted upon it. Granted its all speculation, but that means it takes over 102,000 people to find just one individual who actually goes through the process.

Does this mean chafemasterj's colleciton of 500 of these different designs represents 500 X 102,000 = 51,000,000 different people with only 500 making counterstamps?

Who would' thunk it?

I know Earle42. When I started my collection I would have never thought there are so many out there either. There are some older counter stamps that have some pretty impressive detail too. That took some impressive stamp making skill back in the day. Pre computer technology. Also, they many times come in groups from one person. The last ten or so that I posted came from someone in Canada. I can tell that all of them were stamped by the same person. They all have the same 'look' to them. I can even tell that all of the stamps were made by the same stamp maker because the style of them is all similar.

CelticKnot... I pretty much post them as I acquire them. I might find ten or so on an auction and photograph them and save them in my draft folder and post one a day or so.

Assuming you get extras in lots that you buy. Besides the Kennedy, are there others which seem more numerous than others?

You need to write a book to preserve the info you are discovering by collecting these so other people can see/enjoy these and their history/story as part of numismatics.

Wow! Well there's an idea that has never crossed my mind. I've always considered my CCF thread here my way of contributing in that way.

@Rothery. Thanks. I actually just won a bid on a small set of counter stamps and there were two more different bear designs. So more bears to come.
