    We likely all find altered coins in roll searches .. .. one here shows Abe & JFK are copper buddies forever and the other depicts Abe merrily smoking his pipe. These recent finds are from Covid lockdown & safe distancing to pass the time. I save ones like these, just for fun - don't expect to get rich off them!

    I've seen others find this counterstamp before, but I don't think I have. But the Lincoln-Kennedy cents come in various configurations and I've found a couple of those.

    There are kennedy halves with a tiny kennedy looking back at him. Wonder if anyone here has one

    I've seen the Lincoln-JFK one numerous times but never saw the James Bond (007) one before. Nice to keep.
