    Finances are all relative. A billion (if not with an s) people would say the same thing for paying 10 dollars for a cent

    It’s one the most famous of all truly rare American coins. The price was up there, but seems like that was true for all of these Heritage auctions. I didn’t win anything, and the lots I looked at casually seemed to go for strong money.

    Surprised it didn't get a "details" grade - graffiti, PMD . . . .

    There's hope for all our coins . . .

    And you see graffiti where?
    I hope I am missing your point.

    The EB counterpunch could be considered graffiti. i think he was joking, though.

    Counterstamp? Applied post strike, right?

    Fits the definition of both "graffiti" and "post mint damage," but was intended as a humorous statement . . .

    Tough crowd, sheesh . . . .

    I understand that you were probably saying the statement in Jest. But the counterstamp was applied to the coins By Ephraim Brasher himself. Just as he did to all his other silverware pieces, as a trademark.
    So, one could say that these are as struck.

    Below is one of the write ups by Heritage. It is a good read.

    Here's the closest I will ever get to this coin, a Nova Eborac copper by Ephraim Brasher. Some of the letter punches that were used on the doubloon were used on this piece.
