That is one nice piece. A great piece of Civil War history. That would be great in anyone's collection!
Who remembers these counterstamped dollars? I guess they're still circulating, but not as much as they once did
Change for... what?
I’ve a Kennedy Half with a “MLK” counterstamp on it. In your opinion is that just another idiot who defaced a coin? Or is that characterization contingent on one’s politics?
When I posted this on discussion boards I actually was contacted by the guy that made these - glad someone noticed it and kept it apparently
I don't want to sound rude, but judging by your post, I'm assuming you're aware that it's not contemporary to the American Civil War.
That's not real money, you're out $20 right ?
I just looked the picture up so that wasn't a real transaction
Wow... Imagine the time it took just to PLAN the spacing of the words. Amazing.
You got one too? Mine was from the local 7 eleven.
im sorry they didnt like it.........
You're very kind!
Love that sentiment, and the "no more lies / no more war" Jefferson nickel was quite well counterstamped. Personally, I don't go in for any defaced currency less than 100 years old. I figure the defacer is unlikely around to benefit from my purchase then (although some might deface an old coin in a contemporary setting - I'm generally against encouraging such activity).
Unlike some "novelty" bills, the 3 of those I've seen were not overprinted on real bills. So, if someone is passing those as real money, that's criminal.
Hmm... isn't there a trial going on for someone who was recently killed for spending a suspected counterfeit $20?
