    They are very common both old and new Those are generally given out by the smaller lodges that don't want to spend the money for custom made lodge pennies. The die is cheaper and they can make them as needed. they come in any number of styles and designs. I have a number of them that are posted in the exonumia thread and the large lodge pennies

    I have several of this style that were made by a retired Philly Mint employee.

    Yep. Masonic counterstamps on cents are fairly common, and have been, for a long time. Neat find, though.

    I have one inherited from my grandpop, who was a Mason, dated 1949.
