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