was a merchant counterstamp. That said it
is a nice bust coin with an interesting feature. That may be a selling point to some folks. The folks who don't like it would not like any counter stamped coin.

Not sure nowadays but the counterstamp coins I like are older and so are the counterstamps.
I agree, I'm working on a type coin set of counterstamps. I have quite a few, but my collecting budget doesn't allow for everything. I have to pick and choose what interests me most at the time. I love it when I find the same counterstamp on different denominations.
That is always a nice find.
