ON HOWARD DANIEL'S HOLED AND STAMPED LARGE CENT

Pete Smith submitted these thoughts on Howard Daniel's beat-up cent. -Editor

Holed and stamped Large Cent1 Holed and stamped Large Cent2

I have a few comments about Howard Daniel III's counterstamped large cent.

1. It is a lousy large cent.

2. It is a lousy photograph of a large cent.

3. The type of coin cannot be determined from the photo.

4. I don't believe this represents a counterstamp. Someone bored a hole through this coin. They also touched the coin several times with the boring bit without going through the coin. This might have some industrial application as a test for the bit. It might also just be a piece of whimsy.

5. Howard should write a book about this coin and call it "Penny Whimsy." Perhaps he can also come up with a grading system to describe such coins.
