Hello All, I have been finding several of these gold-colored half dollars which I know are worth no more than face value. However, I recently found one with 2 additional dates stamped on it. 1960 and 1985 were both stamped on the obverse of the coin. Can someone give me any extra info? Thanks.

It's great fun to collect counterstamps, at least to some. Nice ones you found, STK.

I wanted to update you that I found the dates were to represent the 25th anniversary of Kennedy's Election. Thanks for the help.
