QUERY: A HOLED AND STAMPED LARGE CENT

Howard A. Daniel III writes:

I cannot remember where I acquired this U.S. Large Cent but the countermarks and hole just looked too different to pass up. I am not that knowledgeable about U.S. coins but it appears to be a Braided Hair variety dated between 1840 and1857. Does anyone know if there is a recognizable reason for the countermarks? I will have the coin with me in Tampa at the next FUN Show if anyone wants to look at it.

Now that's one ugly coin. I sure can't say I've ever seen anything like it. Any thoughts, readers? -Editor
