All,

Came across an oddity to me. It is a 1959 D Wheat penny with an extremely clear Freemason punch. Just curious if anyone has seen something like this before?



Thanks
TG

These counter-punches are fairly common, but yours is an excellent example.

Yes a nice example @tg. Here are some related CCF threads for further study:

This might go with the 1959-D penny with a Masonic emblem counterstamp:
