    I have some that came up in circulation. I don't search them out, but if one ends up in my hands, I will keep it.

    I've been meaning to pick one of those up. They have eluded me so far.

    Nice one.

    I have a bunch of old ones and a small hoard of newer ones. I find them fascinating, especially the older ones. I love the counter stamped ones that are advertising for a business.
    I managed to get 3 photos to upload tonight. I’m surprised but they are days or times it works. This is the OIL OF ICE, an advertisement. I need to post this in a separate thread as I haven’t done that with this coin. It’s on a Shield Nickel, which is rare for this mark and it fits the time frame of the company. The die was rotated on the coin as well, which adds to the fun of these.

    I got soundly outbid on one of those over a 2 Cent piece recently. I'm still on the lookout.

    I think I'm intrigued by numismatic society counterstamps the most. This one is a bit more modern, executed in 1963 by the Missouri Numismatic Society.

    There's only four examples struck on Shield Nickels that I know of.

    There's also a counterfeit known on an 1866 nickel, but it's not yours, Collecting Nut. Yours is legitimate.

    Here's one of mine on an I/H cent.

    Of course this one, featured across a couple pages in Brunk, is fairly easy to find.

    I like that this counterstamp is aligned well with the host coin. That's a bit tougher to find.

    About 10 years ago the talls ships came to Baltimore and for each ship I had them stamp $1 bills with the ships stamp and gave them out as tips.

    Thanks and if I remember correctly, the Indian Head Cent was the most common coin used for this counter stamp. You’ve got a nice looking one.

    I know a fellow counterstamp collector/researcher who calls these bulls eye stamps. Appropriate I think.
